Goodreads book description:
Every story needs a hero.
Every story needs a villain.
Every story needs a secret.
Wink is the odd, mysterious neighbor girl, wild red hair and freckles. Poppy is the blond bully and the beautiful, manipulative high school queen bee. Midnight is the sweet, uncertain boy caught between them. Wink. Poppy. Midnight. Two girls. One boy. Three voices that burst onto the page in short, sharp, bewitching chapters, and spiral swiftly and inexorably toward something terrible or tricky or tremendous.
What really happened?
Someone is lying.
It’s such a shame that the story was so unpleasant because the writing style is absolutely incredible! Like this crazy, whimsical, magical mess.
This is one of those teen revenge stories that unfolds as a bit of a mystery. There are tons of plots twists and it almost reads like a fairy tale! I think the story itself is well executed and might appeal to a lot of people, but it’s just definitely not for me.
The setting was interesting and the writing was great, but I CAN’T STAND POPPY and the plot is just weird. The characters are all messing with each other and nobody is very pleasant… they’re all like borderline psycopaths.
It’s a super short read but I still ended up skimming the last bit and really didn’t care to finish.
The cover is really pretty, though? That’s fun.
