Synposis: Beatrice Malcolm is living with her aunt and uncle after her mother’s death from Cruetzfeldt-Jakob disease, her father was declared a traitor by the U.S. Government. She is trying to come to terms with her mother’s death and the possibility of never seeing her father again when she meets Lucas Drake. She is inexplicably drawn to him and romance buds but is almost snuffed when he is drawn into the drama surrounding Beatrice’s father. Beatrice is not sure who to trust and how to find the answers she desperately needs to fit back the pieces of her life.
Twist lives up to its name, being full of surprises and unexpected changes in the story line. I became hooked from the very beginning and I didn’t find myself in the lulls at any point. I felt like Bea and her friend Amilee were basically unsupervised in the care of Amilee’s mom, Jessica Gray. I also sensed that if Bea had been adequately advised of how delicate her condition was she may not have went so far with her celebration which caused a decline in her health. The ending was the ultimate twist that left me wondering what was real, hallucination or fantasy. Overall a good read and would only recommend for older teens to adults due to content.
