review One More Lie

That turned her and her only friend into national hate figuresBut now her friend has found her And despite the lies she tells to survive she soon finds herself being dragged deeper and deeper into a past she cannot confrontEven if it’s going to cost Charlotte her life‘Written with experience and style a thriller a chilling one an' all’ANNIE CLARKE FROST MAGAZINE'I'm a huge fan of Amy's writing and I read One More Lie pretty much overnight This is another incredible book from Amy which I know wil A disturbing and unsettling book which got me thinking about nature vs nurture Charlotte is fresh out of prison trying to start a new life but despite having a job a place to live and an electronic tag she soon finds herself making bad decisions which could end up with her back in prison Sean has been out a while but isn t living his best life What happened when Charlotte was 10 Will she remember Which one of them is the bad guyThis was an uncomfortable read for me as it dealt with two characters who were convicted of murder when they were young children It gave me flashbacks from the Jamie Bulger case and made me feel anxious I was only a little older than they were and my sister the same age when that happened and it has haunted me ever since I have often asked myself are children who kill other children born evil or does their life experience shape them Should children convicted of murder be given a second chanceThe story is told from both Sean and Charlotte s POV and flashes back and forth in time Both characters were both extremely unlikeable but they definitely both left an impression on me Sean had a sad upbringing and people expected him to end up in prison Since he s been released he has not been living a life free from crime Charlotte who tells of the story than Sean seemed frozen in time from when she was arrested Childlike lonely and anxious she had a huge lack of social skills and had also blocked out any memory of the crime Even though Charlotte had a very sad childhood I found it hard to empathise with her She made bad decision after bad decision as both a child and an adult and it was very frustrating She was also a little odd other children didn t like her when she was young and I think that s very tellingParts of the book were uite slow and it wasn t really that shocking or twisty for a psychological thriller but it did build up tension well and I felt fearful as I could sense it wasn t going to end well I could see where the plot was going and it made me feel uite stressed outTo sum up this book dealt with an uncomfortable topic and I cant really say that I enjoyed reading it But it was thought provoking and the end was uite chilling
