Book Review:Envy by Greg Olsen

Envy by Greg Olsen                                      

Hardcover, 285 pages
Published September 6th 2011 by Splinter


Sypnosis: Murder is such a dirty word…
New York Times bestselling adult true crime author Gregg Olsen makes his YA debut with EMPTY COFFIN, a gripping new fiction series for teens based on ripped-from-the-headlines stories…with a paranormal touch.
Crime lives--and dies--in the deceptively picture-perfect town of Port Gamble (aka “Empty Coffin”), Washington. Evil lurks and strange things happen--and 15-year-olds Hayley and Taylor Ryan secretly use their wits and their telepathic “twin-sense” to uncover the truth about the town's victims and culprits.

Envy, the series debut, involves the mysterious death of the twins' old friend, Katelyn. Was it murder? Suicide? An accident? Hayley and Taylor are determined to find out--and as they investigate, they stumble upon a dark truth that is far more disturbing than they ever could have imagined.

Based on the shocking true crime about cyber-bullying, Envy will take you to the edge--and push you right over.


My Review:
Envy by Greg Olsen was such A book deserving the "Best Creepy Book Cover Award!" since its immediately haunted you from page one. Its was such a eerie,gripping,spine-tickling read that it kept me on EDGE after reading it at night on a Friday. It made with sweat with the heart-chilling elements really crafted carefully in the book! I was very happy to review this book for Splinter Publishing when I requested an ARC of Colleen Houck's Tiger Voyage. The ending was crazy, I loved the twins Hayley and Taylor with their curious personality, and it was such a different,cool YA Book based on a true crime story! :D Definitely give it a try and try to stray from your normal reads!

Its about a girl named Katelyn whom commits suicide in her bathroom because of some drama about a guy and her mom. After the accident, the town of Port Gamble is abuzz on what happened to Katelyn and the cause of her killing herself.  Twins Hayley and Taylor use their telepathic senses to solve a mystery that left everyone dumbfounded.

Eerie and scary a book with a title Envy is sure to bring you chills you never dreamed.

5 Balloons! Its was a different read and I enjoyed it alot! :D ^^
