ARC Review: The Stranger Game

The Stranger Game
by Cylin Busby

 Nico's sister was found, but did she really return? The Stranger Game is twisted and dark, and will really get you hooked in. So many mysteries and secrets rolled up into one amazingly written book. This book focuses on 12-year-old Nico Walker. Her older sister Sarah mysteriously disappeared, and for Nico it was a huge relief due to everything Sarah put her through. Now Sarah is back, but changed. Throughout the book, it becomes more and more clear to Nico what exactly happened on the fatal night of Sarah's disappearance. One of the most relevant quotes in this book is “The longer you tell yourself a lie, the more you believe it, until finally it becomes your truth.” The author does a spectacular job of tying in well said quotes within the actual plot. Not only does Busby do that but she makes the quotes relatable to people's everyday lives which is one of my favorite things about this book. There is nothing better than book that you can relate to and apply to your own life. I would have to say the most interesting character in the book has to be Sarah. The author switches back and forth through perspectives, but when it is time to read Sarah's side of the story, readers get to listen and experience what she went through while she was missing that none of the other characters would have even known. 

All in all, I would give this book a five star rating! I recommend this book for ages 13-18 because the plot moves along very fast and is very intense. Readers who love creepy, action packed, and mysterious books would love this read, and probably will not be able to put it down!
