The Last Time I Lied: Book Review

The book “The Last Time I Lied” by Riley Sager.  This book is about a girl named Emma that spent a life changing 13th summer away at an elite summer camp.  Emma arrives at camp late and is put into a cabin with a group of girls that are three years older than she.  During her time at camp she befriends the three girls in her cabin. Then one night they disappear without a trace. The book alternates between that summer fifteen years ago and present day. 

In present day, Emma is an artist that has received recognition for her dark and scary painting scenes of the woods surrounding the camp. The missing girls are featured in all her paintings.  Fifteen years after the disappearance the camp is reopening, and Emma is asked to return as an art teacher.  Throughout the story, Emma is investigating and trying to solve the mystery of the disappearance of her friends. 

However, when the young teens currently sharing her cabin also disappear without a trace, Emma is suspected in both disappearances.  This book was very well written and keeps you in suspense until the very end. I recommend this book to anyone who loves a good who-done-it.  Although, I would caution that there is a sex scene that is approximately one page long and would not be appropriate for younger audiences.
