We'll Never Be Apart by Emiko Jean

Thursday, September 3, 2015




That’s all seventeen-year-old Alice Monroe thinks about. Committed to a mental ward at Savage Isle, Alice is haunted by memories of the fire that killed her boyfriend, Jason. A blaze her twin sister Cellie set. But when Chase, a mysterious, charismatic patient, agrees to help her seek vengeance, Alice begins to rethink everything. Writing out the story of her troubled past in a journal, she must confront hidden truths.

Is the one person she trusts only telling her half the story? Nothing is as it seems in this edge-of-your-seat psychological thriller from the debut author Emiko Jean.

Goodreads Summary

This book is a psychological thriller that will leave you guessing on a thrill ride until the pages of the story expire. If it isn't enough that Alice is a teenager with raging hormones, she also has to deal with a being in a mental hospital over the death of her boyfriend. She is angry and she wants to get the person back who caused her boyfriend's death. 

The author does a great job at painting the picture of being in a mental hospital. Specifically the interactions between the patients that you would see in a mental hospital. Things are just plain weird and you get a big taste of that in this book. One thing that I wish was different was the pace of the story. It didn't drag at all, but also didn't follow suit with your typical thriller. The plot wasn't very original either. It seemed like a conglomerate of all the other horror plots out there. The twist at the end was pretty predictable as well. Overall not a bad story though.
