SweetFreak is yet again another stand out read from Sophie McKenzie! It had it all – interesting characters, an edgy storyline, twisty turns and nail-biting moments!
The storyline follows the aftermath of one of two best friends being accused of cyber bullying the other. It gets serious, police are involved and a death threat is on the table. Forced into a corner with nowhere to hide, Carey, must prove her innocence or take the fall…
I really enjoyed the family dynamics throughout this story and the relationships were believable and honest. I loved watching Carey jump to conclusions and try to work through everything. ANother thing I enjoyed was the very lovely hints of romance simmering along in the back round in the second half of the book.
Sophie McKenzie sure knows how to keep readers glued to those pages. The mystery kept me addicted and I flipped those pages all to quickly. I think this was a brilliantly written and constructed novel with lots of wonderful little twists and turns – not to mention bitching episodes! Not my favourite of Sophie McKenzie’s but still really enjoyed.
