YA Book Review- The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die by April Henry

Our guest reviewer, Sophia, really thinks you should pick this one up.

“April is now one of my favorite authors. The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die by April Henry is a great mystery book that will keep everyone holding their breath. A girl wakes up in a cabin, that she does not know, to two men talking about killing her. When one of them leaves, the other man is hesitant but does drag her into the woods. She is more awake now, enough to attack him and take his gun, keys, and wallet. When she escapes and tells a police officer what just happened, he tries to convince her that she is on drugs or from a hospital for mentally ill teens. Is this true?! She escapes from the officer and drives to McDonalds where she eats, falls asleep, and wakes up to a teen named Ty who is closing the restaurant. Seeing that the girl is in trouble, Ty brings her home with him and together they find out who she really is, why those men from the cabin were trying to kill her, and most importantly who her parents are.”
