All These Beautiful Strangers by Elizabeth Klehfoth is a young adult mystery that is told from multiple points of view and several timelines Reading this one I had the thought that the author successfully made a book stew, she managed to combine a couple of mysteries and some drama into an interesting story.First we have seventeen year old Charlie Calloway who is a junior at the prestigious Knollwood and looking forward to joining Knollwood s secret elite society, the As Charlie is ready to put her past behind her and step out of the shadow of her family name so when invited to join the high stakes scavenger hunt that begins the initiation into the As Charlie is excited to join the in crowd.Ten years before when Charlie was seven her mother had gone missing and even a decade later there were never any definite answers to what happened Rumors still swirl that Charlie s father had murdered Grace but evidence points to Grace having planned to leave the marriage and disappear.And then twenty years earlier there was another mystery that involved Charlie s family Her mother had been good friends with a boy named Jake who had attended Knollwood back then and had been said to commit suicide Grace had never really believed of the suicide and blamed herself for not knowing what was goin WELL THAT WAS UTTERLY AND IRREVOCABLY DISAPPOINTING.Let me just start off that if you like Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars, and the dramatic flair for the points of being hella extra.then look no further folks because we got here the same run of the mill mediocre and somewhat boring mystery drama tale of a pretentious high school student uncovering the buried secrets of the past, all the while getting caught up in a tangle wood of lies and deceit in the present.Doesn t that sound like a juicy fishhook of a TV show movie you might find somewhere like on the CW or Lifetime Because literally hellllll nooooo I m over it already.So I legit thought this book was Adult but it wasn t it s YA And if y all know me chuckle, chuckle I LITERALLY DO NOT LIKE YA MYSTERY THRILLERS Well, most of the time anyways And thriller Um nonexistent Maybe that s just on me and its just marketed as mystery suspense Well whatever because that wasn t even the fault I had with the book it was with the main character herself Charlie Fairchil No one can really understand the whole of a person In many ways, the people I was closest to, the people who meant the most to me were strangers Beautiful strangers4.5 beautiful stars It s honestly thebest feeling ever when a book you were hesitant to start ends up in your favourites list and leaves you absolutely stunned First of all, I would like to thankPenguin NZfor sending me a physical ARC of this book And let me also tell you first up that I was not expecting to love this book I don t usually read mystery but I do enjoy YA contemporary and this seemed like a good mix which is why I was curious enough to give it a go Another thing I was not expecting was to fall in love with these characters and invest my heart in their relationships so badly that their grief would literally show in my mood I can t believe that I am already looking forward to rereading the book again to experience those emotions again What has this book turned me into The MC, Charlie Calloway, was a joy to read a Find all of my reviews

privileged white kids AmIrightoramIright The story here focuses on Grace, a richie rich boarding school type of gal who has just received an invitation to begin the initiation process in order to become a member of a supersecret club known as The Skulls Whoops I mean the A s Then you have a secon Ten years ago, when Charlie was seven years old, her mother disappeared Charlie is now seventeen, and away at boarding school When she is tapped to join the A s, the school s secret society, she s excited, but a little concerned about the initiation process As she plays the game the A s ask of

by her mother s disappearance From Charlie s viewpoint, the reader learns about the present and the past Grace and Alistair are Charlie s parents Their chapters are mostly about the past The alternating timelines and POVs were handled well, and easily distinguished from one another.A large portion of the book is about Charlie s school life, friendships, and initiation into the A s The initiation process involves an elaborate scavenger I received a free copy of All These Beautiful Strangers by Elizabeth Klehfoth from Goodreads for my honest review Wonderful read, keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next Charlie Calloway has it all, a wonderful family, fantastic friends, money Charlie finds out about a secret society at her school and is determined to get in it Little does she know that the 5All These Beautiful Strangers by Elizabeth Klehfoth will hook you from the very start and eat up ALL of your free time What it s about Charlie is 7 when her mother disappears from the family lake house never to be seen again Now at age 17 Charlie is going to a prestigious boarding school called Knollwood Prep where there is an elite group of students called the A s The A s have chosen her to be an initiate to their secret club, but to be a part of it she must play a very serious game that will threaten everything As if that wasn t enough, secrets of the past are coming to light and causing Charlie to wonder if her mom really did run off, or if something much worse is at play.This book was SO GOOD I believe this is a young adult novel but I found myself forgetting that as I read I also cannot believe it is a debut novel because it reads like this author has been in the game of writing silly for a very long time I was fully engrossed in the story and had a hard time putting it down This This felt like a very interesting YA adult novel hybrid, with it s focus on both Charlie Calloway in 2017 and her parents in the 1990s With Charlie s mother s disappearance, and the mysterious death of a boy on campus, there are than a few secrets hidden by the Calloways, and as the book slowly unfolds, you get all the answers The three POVs and different time periods means there s often dramatic irony in the relaying of information, so mostly I was waiting for Charlie to catch up on things I d already read being admitted There was a lot of elements to this book that I enjoyed, like the secret society at the boarding school very Frankie Landau Banks and Charlie joining the school paper, but I think I would have liked it if the story was heavily weighted on Charlie being a detective, rather than just given information by uncles and friends of the family Secondary characters swarmed this book, and I cared quite a lot for Drew and Grayson, but the focus on the parent storylines meant their prominence was weak I did like that I couldn t put my fin
