I finally read a YA thriller. I have off- late begun to pick up book recommendations from Instagram accounts I follow, and this has enabled me to experiment different genres and styles of writing. Bad girls with Perfect Faces by Lynn Weingarten, a Young Adult thriller, is one such random pick that took me by storm.
A simple tale indeed
“Be careful when your feelings are too strong, when you love someone too much. A heart too full is like a bomb. One day it will explode.”
Three strong characters were all that was required to write this tale of friendship, love and jealousy. Simple in every way, yet when their lives entangle, the complexities that arise are hard to straighten out. And sometime a single error could trigger a ripple effect and cause devastation.
“Be careful when your feelings are too strong, when you love someone too much. A heart too full is like a bomb. One day it will explode.” I just couldn’t get this book off my head.

Teen love triangle and a twist
What starts out as a simple love triangle moves on to become a fast paced thriller of sorts. With a plot that’s loaded with twists and turns, be assured, this is one page turner. There may be potions which may sound over dramatic, yet go with the flow and the eventuality would take you by storm. A bit melodramatic too, with two youngsters professing their love, but then I realized it’s a YA fiction that’s targeted for a younger age bracket.
