Review: We'll Never Be Apart by Emiko Jean




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.

Hardcover, 288 pages
Expected publication: October 6th 2015 by HMH Books for Young Readers
Terri's Thought

**I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.  The expected publication date is October 6th 2015**

I was intrigued about the concept of this story as being a twin I enjoy reading anything that features twins in it.  Also, I have a rather odd fascination with stories centralized around mental hospitals.  There are so many possibilities with the direction a story can take.

While I was able to figure out where the plot was going to take me right from the get go I was still invested in how it would take me there.  With Alice struggling to remember what happened and battling her need for revenge it made for an interesting story.

I can't go too much in to the plot as it would reveal some spoilers so I won't.  I will just say that I enjoyed this story and the emotional battle that Alice was going through.  I also liked the supporting character of Chase who assisted Alice to figure things out.

This is a good story for the YA audience that is just a little different than the usual stories filling the shelves these days.  I would recommend
