I’ve not read anything by Kit Frick before, but from having read I Killed Zoe Spanos I can tell that she’s going to be a thriller author for me! I Killed Zoe Spanos was a fast paced thriller (love), with Rich People Drama (double love), that was set during the summer in the Hamptons. There was a lot going on for such a short book, and I was truly engaged the entire time.
I really enjoyed the way that podcasts were incorporated within this story. After reading Sadie last year, I’ve realised that I tend to love this format, especially in thrillers when the podcasts are to do with true crime.
Anna, the main character, wasn’t the most likeable or interesting character. I didn’t really connect with her at all, and she kept doing strange things. As sin, her choices weren’t just questionable, they were questionable. I realise she’s a teenager, and teenagers do stupid things, but it got to the point where I was like you MUST realise what you’re doing…
As usual, I didn’t care for the romance in this book. I never do in YA unless it’s particularly great, so don’t worry too much about that aspect.
Overall, I Killed Zoe Spanos has an interesting mystery that leaves you wondering about the reliability of the narrator. That mixed with the podcast element and the Rich People Drama made for a really entertaining ride!
