Better Left Buried Review


When I received Better Left Buried,I had high expectations for this book. I loved Emma's book "Now You See Me". It was tense,and had so many twists and turns,constantly keeping the reader on the edge of the seat with what was going to happen next. 
Better Left Buried did not disappoint,it was fast paced,and had great character development. 
I'm going to try and keep my review as spoiler free as possible as I would love everyone to read it for themselves and see what they make of the characters.
Sarah is coming to terms with her brothers sudden death,which has shocked the entire family to the core, on top of all this she has to deal with a extremely moody distant best friend who doesn't seem interested in her anymore,and prepare for possibly the most important audition of her life.
Sarah is being stalked,a man following her every move,what seems like a coincidence soon turns into a very dangerous race against time,to discover this persons true identity or look over her shoulder for the rest of her life.
Sometimes the people closest to you are really the ones you don't know at all,at least in Sarah's case. Her brother was hiding a massive secret from her and their family,and it is only a matter of time before his secret will catch up with Sarah and ruin her life forever.
But perhaps,when Sarah really needs help,it is from the person you would least expect?

I can't say enough how much I loved this book,I read it in one sitting and you become so involved in the story,with the characters and their lives that you feel like you are in their world with them. Emma is such a brilliant author,her ideas are really original and the chapters just flow when I am reading. I really hope there is a second book for Better Left Buried,as I'd love to find out if Sarah's friendship with her best friend improves and whether anything happens between Sarah and  a certain character?! (spoiler free,remember!) Also,when  I was reading,I could imagine it being made into a movie,I can imagine the characters so vividly in my head. Both of Emma's YA books will grab you,and make it impossible for you to put them down,they are jam packed with heart racing,edge of seat scenes.
A recommend for everyone.
