Hi y’all! I have a super fun book for you today! No, really. I mean it. I literally flew through this book in a matter of hours. It was witty, suspenseful and the plot was whoa!!
I actually requested this book when I read the synopsis a few months back. It sounded intriguing with the whole I’ll kill your villain if you kill mine plot. I was really interested to see how it would play it out. A lot of times, I’ll start reading a seemingly interesting thriller but then the author takes it to an implausible ending and it just ends up feeling cheesy. This book, though, hit it right on the mark with the execution. The protagonist, Jazz, was incredibly funny and had just enough sarcasm to keep the story lively. This is more on the YA side but not so much that it’s too childish. It was 4/5 ⭐️
Thanks to MIRA books and Harper Collins for the free advanced reading copy. All opinions are my own.
Jazz will stop at nothing to save her brother.
Their foster mother, Carol, has always been fanatical, but with Jazz grown up and out of the house, Carol takes a dangerous turn that threatens thirteen-year-old Joaquin’s life. Over and over, child services fails to intervene, and Joaquin is running out of time.
Then Jazz gets a blocked call from someone offering a solution. There are others like her—people the law has failed. They’ve formed an underground network of “helpers,” each agreeing to eliminate the abuser of another. They’re taking back their power and leaving a trail of bodies throughout Los Angeles—dubbed the Blackbird Killings. If Jazz joins them, they’ll take care of Carol for good.
All she has to do is kill a stranger.
