It all starts with a text: Please, Wylie, I need your help. Wylie hasn't heard from Cassie in over a week, not since their last fight. But that doesn't matter. Cassie's in trouble, so Wylie decides to do what she has done so many times before: save her best friend from herself. This time it is different, though. Instead of telling Wylie where she is, Cassie sends cryptic clues. And instead of having Wylie come by herself, Jasper shows up saying Cassie sent him to help. Trusting the guy who sent Cassie off the rails doesn't feel right, but Wylie has no choice but to ignore her gut instinct and go with him. But figuring out where Cassie is goes from difficult to dangerous, fast. As Wylie and Jasper head farther and farther north into the dense woods of Maine, Wylie struggles to control her growing sense that something is really wrong. What isn't Cassie telling them? And could finding her be only the beginning?

Far less thriller-y than I was hoping...Not to sound like a monster, but I actually found myself feeling disappointment when the creepy group in the woods didn't end up hunting the teens for sport. It was an intriguing premise that just fell a little flat for me.

Honestly, don't waste your time. This book is filled with so many ridiculous twists and turns, that the stunts just become meaningless...and those twists turn out to be incredibly predictable. Her other book, Reconstructing Amelia, is a much better page-turning read.

Always emotionally fragile, Wylie is struggling to hold it together since her Mom died in a car accident. When her best friend Cassie disappears, she gets an urgent text to come and find her. Why has Cassie been taken, where is she and what does her Father's research have to do with all of it?

THE OUTLIERS by Kimberly McCreight is a novel full of mystery, excitement, and danger. The characters all have their own backstories and personality. Just when you think you have this book figured out, it will turn out to be the opposite of what you expected, providing a thrilling reading experience.
