Last Girl Breathing

We rated this book:


Eight years ago, Lucy Michaels lost her little brother in a catastrophic flood. Now at 17, she’s doing her best to erase the memories of that day and focus on her goal: making the Olympics air rifle team. But when her step brother and one of her best friends are found dead in the same place she lost her little brother, Lucy is thrown back into the grief and trauma of the past. The prime suspect: her ex-boyfriend, for whom she still has feelings. Unable to believe it, Lucy seeks to find the truth. But in this game of cat and mouse, the wrong move could be deadly.

I liked this book because it was suspenseful, engaging and entertaining. Lucy was an enthralling protagonist, and she was easy to connect with emotionally. The suspense was excellent, and I honestly didn’t see most of the twists coming. Now, for the part I could have done without: there’s an implied romantic relationship going on between Lucy and her stepbrother before he’s murdered which I thought was… weird and off putting. Other than that, it was a good read. I would recommend it to young adults.
