Less Than A Month Has Passed Since Devon Mackintosh Uncovered The Truth About The Apparent Suicide Of Keaton S Golden Boy And Her Unrequited Love, Hutch But That Doesn T Mean The Danger Is Over Her Own Life Has Been Threatened Solving Hutch S Case Only Unearthed Questions What Lies Beneath The Keaton Land That Could Be So Valuable As To Tear The Hutchins Family Apart Hutch S Grandfather, Reed Hutchins, Knows The Answer But Reed Is Dying Of Cancer, And This Dark Family Secret Might Die With Him Faced With No Other Option, Devon Swipes Reed S Diary And Plunges Into His Life As AnYear Old Science Prodigy In The Immediate Aftermath Of Pearl Harbor Through His Adolescent Eyes And His Role In Biological Weapons Research, Still Classified To This Day Devon Fights To Piece Together The Final Clues To What Haunts The Keaton Hillsides, The Truth Reed S Enemies Are Still Willing To Kill For Scholarship girl investigates the secret, probably dastardly doings of her prep school classmates and their super rich families Veronica Marsy I didn t read the first installment, so I probably didn t appreciate it as much as I could have, but I can say fairly assuredly that it you should probably read the first one to figure out who s who and what s at stake.Also, here s a thing I don t like detectives who find secret, bizarrely expository diaries that obviously contain very important mystery clues annoying enough and then NOT READING IT ALL AT ONCE Gah. First I will say I should have re read the first book I was a bit confused throughout the story other than that I found it to be a very enjoyable read the characters were likable and very relatable and Down to earth the mystery was easy to follow other then I forgot a lot of the first book I would definitely recommend it q Definitely not as good as the first book But it s an easy, quick read, so I guess it was worth it to kind of tie up some loose ends. It s spring semester, Devon s back at Keaton, and somebody s trying to kill her.The first book had Devon up against a prescription drug ring on campus I wasn t a big fan, mostly because so much of it seemed implausible to me Most of the issues I had there are no longer applicable Devon isn t a the peer counsellor to whom students spill all while also calling her a narc , and things feel a lot darker to her now She doesn t trust in the process so much, given everything that happened in Escape Theory.But the book feels kind oflike filler I m not sure what word I m looking for, but it feels like a warm up to the next book Devon doesn t solve a mystery here so much as she spends the book trying to figure out what the mystery is She doesn t go to boarding school or school at all so much as it s the vague background for the book showing my bias here, though I picked up the first book precisely because it was set at boarding school The recurring characters get very little introduction, presumably because we re supposed to remember them from the previous book whichnope , so they can be a little hard to get behind.Meanwhile, a lot happens action wise, but not so much plot wise I sort of wonder whether the entire book could have been condensed into a couple of chapters that made up the premise of whatever book comes next Again, I m probably showing my bias here I have no idea how many books are planned for this series or if this is the last one, for that matter but I get frustrated by trilogies, in particular, where it feels like the second book is only there to get to the third book I was in the minority on Escape Theory, and I expect I ll be in the minority here as well but again, not really one that worked for me I received a free copy of this book via a Goodreads giveaway.
