Book Review: You Are Not Alone by Greer Hendricks

The concept of You Are Not Alone is interesting and terrifying at the same time. It is a dark thriller that is believable and scary because the circumstances can happen to anyone. It is quite easy to see yourself in Shay’s shoes.

❀ Neurotic Main Character

Although, Shay is a relatable main character, she is a bit neurotic. She is obsessed with facts and statistics and researches everything around her. If that’s not enough, she also records all of this data in a journal. That being said, Shay is still likeable and it is easy to empathize with her situation.

❀ Lots of Side Characters

The book is told from multiple perspectives with a focus on Shay and the Moore sisters (Cassandra and Jane.) It is fascinating to watch the story unfold through these different points of view, however the one thing that I must say is there are lots of side characters. At times it is hard to keep track of them, but this didn’t affect my overall enjoyment of the story.

If you enjoy a thriller that is on the darker side, You Are Not Alone by Greer Hendricks is one to watch for. The premise is one that is believable and scary. It is a fast-paced book that will leave you surprised at the end.
