    One thought on “If You Wrong Us”

    1. Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to Flux and NetGalley Last year, Becca lost her twin sister Brit in a car accident.It was the same accident that took my mom the accident that bought Becca to me This was a bit of an odd story about a girl whose twin sister was murdered, and she was determined to pay back the person she felt was responsible.I felt quite sorry for Becca at first, but as the book went on I started to wonder if she was maybe a l [...]

    2. If You Wrong Us was a surprisingly gripping, quick paced and entertaining novel that, while not entirely original and certainly not without flaws, had some unexpectedly decent writing, a remarkable understanding of criminal law over which I was excited, that being my favorite class last semester and all the material still fresh in my mind and a lot of potential for a great YA psychological thriller Unfortunately, the novel quickly unraveled during the second half, ultimately delivering very mess [...]

    3. Book Review originally published here iheartreading reviews The first half of this book had all the ingredients for being a fast paced, chilling psychological thriller, but unfortunately this unraveled during the second half The climax was underwhelming, and it didn t tie up all loose ends The dual narrative worked well, and the characters were intriguing though Enjoyable, but did not fulfill the high hopes I had for it after reading the first half.

    4. I was initially going to give this book 4 stars because I loved the story itself so much, but the grammatical errors abound in this short novel There were so many errors that it took away from the story itself and from the flow of my reading it The proof readers and or the editor of this novel definitely did not do their job.

    5. I received a free ARC of If You Wrong Us from Flux via Netgalley in exchange of an honest and unbiased review If You Wrong Us is a chilling psychological thriller, where the characters feel entitled to revenge, not thinking about how revenge could lead to much hurt for everyone involved.

    6. I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for my review.This was basically a YA version of Gone Girl, but not nearly as interesting The book jumps between Johnny s POV in the present and Becca s POV in the past Six months ago, there was a horrible car accident where Becca s twin sister and Johnny s mom dies Before the accident, they had no interactions with each other Then Becca becomes obsessed with getting revenge on the person who is responsible and she brings Johnny into her plan There [...]

    7. We deserve justice We all deserve it This was a twisted little story with a lot of players and puzzle pieces you didn t know But I felt like the story was a little rocky and didn t fully connect It its play to confuse you and keep you guessing, I think it muddied the waters enough that the ending felt a bit like a lie And some of the ramblings didn t seem to make sense as things were revealed because the previous ramblings didn t match up any But it was an interesting read.

    8. Okay, so when I first read the synopsis on the back of the book, I put this as most anticipated I believed that this book was going to be amazing First off it s about teens who go through a loss when a purposeful car crash kills two people they love The story basically goes back in forth between three people and also includes flashbacks Two being the ones out for revenge, Becca and Johnny And the one being someone who knows what exactly happened but isn t named until later in the book Becca is t [...]

    9. This is a teen suspense novel, so it s thriller factor is on the lower end I enjoyed the concept of the story It s a short novel with an unexpected ending There were some grammatical errors, but it didn t distract me from the story.

    10. IF YOU WRONG US is a darkly appealing and incredibly chilling read It s a story that lulls the reader into a false sense of security as at first glance everything appears to be normal It is only as the story progresses that the author introduces elements that hint that not all is as it seems, giving the reader a nagging sense of wrongness that will continue to grow as things become darker and disturbing And with alternating points of view that allow for a glimpse into the minds of characters wh [...]

    11. What the hell did I just read More 2.5 ish than 3 review to come update 2.5 STARS Originally posted HEREA quick read that wasn t as thrilling as I thought it d be For the life of me, I couldn t stop rolling my eyes at the ridiculousness of the situation The characters all seemed to just float through the story Their plan seemed so superficial to me Like, it was all based on a lie A lie that was just downright phony You can t trust one of the narrators I found that out about half way through I fo [...]

    13. This book is the ultimate revenge story Centering on two teens who have lost a loved one in a terrible car accident, this book is dark and twisty and oh so unsettling In the book we meet Becca, the deeply maniacal and mentally unstable twin left behind after the accident, and Johnny, the pushover boy who falls for Becca s plan to exact revenge on the boy she thinks is responsible for the death of her sister and Johnny s mother.If that all seems a bit convoluted, it s because it kind of is I defi [...]

    14. I was so very excited for If You Wrong Us but, unfortunately, it failed all my expectations It is advertised as Gone Girl for teens but as for me, it didn t even get close to the masterpiece Gone Girl is To give credit to the author, the novel started off pretty awesomely, and I was sucked into Becca and Johnny s want for revenge However, around halfway I felt like everything went up in flames I lost the connection I had with the characters before, thus wasn t that into the story scratch that, I [...]

    15. If You Wrong Us is a dark young adult novel about two teens that are brought together after Johnny loses his mother and Becca loses her twin sister in the same car crash They plot revenge once they discover that the crash was no accident This novel reminded me of Gone Girl combined with Life By Committee It has a manipulative female lead that will do anything to get what she wants It has a very dark and twisted story line, just like Gone Girl, but I think it failed in comparison It also has the [...]

    16. If You Wrong Us is a thriller of huge proportions We have always heard revenge is a two edge sword but this revenge just keeps sliding you to a conclusion that you can only fear It is listed as a young adult book, as the characters are young adults, but wow did it hold my attention Becca lost her twin sister, while he twin was helping her break up with a boy supposedly Johnny s mom was driving home with pizza to celebrate They smashed into each other and died Becca with her brilliance in math an [...]

    17. Full Review may be found over on my blog Kai Attempts Book Blogging If You Wrong Us ReviewI m giving this a 2.75 out of 5 I felt that it was better than a 2.5 but not quite a 3.Overall I liked it, it definitely got me in the mood for spooky, thrilling reads It s dark quick, but it s also riddled with typos grammatical errors I felt that the story fell flat in the end.It s also set in Detroit and, since that s the area I grew up in, I was probably a little critical about a few things details wo [...]

    18. From pingwings I have mixed feelings about this book I read it fairly quickly and was really curious about how it would end, and I liked the structure, with chapters alternating between Becca and Johnny in the past, and occasionally chapters from an unknown narrator in the present I liked getting to see both Becca s and Johnny s perspectives because they weren t always being honest with each other, and so I got to read about thoughts and feelings that they didn t necessarily share with each othe [...]

    19. You Won t Be Able to Put This Book Down This is my first time reading this author, and certainly will not be the last, but as soon as I read the the title and saw the cover, which screams READ ME Then the synopsis clinched it I knew I had to read the book From the start I was sucked right into the book This is a dark, intense, gripping, breath stealing, edge of your seat, and full body shudder read I loved the fact that we get both characters POV s and the way that the author lead us along dropp [...]

    20. This book is compulsively readable I could NOT put it down and read it in one sitting From the start, you re just dropped into these character s heads as they race towards a finish line and the whole time I was gripping my Kindle going, oh my gosh, no, what are you doing I loved the unreliable narrator stuff going on and the way the author played with that, twisting our perceptions so that we re forced to question what we thought we knew I just wanted to hug Johnny he was the most sympathetic ch [...]

    22. Minnesota author I actually picked this book up and met the author at a convention last fall As the author is going to be at TeenLitCon shortly that was my impetus to actually read the book The chapters alternate between Becca and Johnny s perspectives They each had a family member die in a car crash and have been working together in a revenge scheme While I did guess at some of the ending, I didn t quite have all The author was very good at dispensing pieces of information slowly so you get the [...]
