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.
❀ A Dark Thriller
You Are Not Alone by Greer Hendricks is one to watch for if you enjoy a thriller that is on the darker side. The premise is one that is believable and scary. It is a fast-paced book that will leave you surprised at the end.
Book Quotes: You Are Not Alone by Greer Hendricks
Numbers never lie. Statistics, charts, percentages — they don’t contain hidden agendas or shades of gray. They’re pure and true. It isn’t until people start meddling with them, spinning and shaping them, that they become dishonest.
On my eleventh birthday, which fell on a Saturday, my mom took me shopping at the local mall. She told the saleswoman at Lord & Taylor that I needed a special outfit for a special occasion. I wasn’t the kind of girl who dreamed about pink ruffles or tulle- I preferred soccer and math puzzles.
