    One thought on “Splinter”

    1. Release Date:January 1, 2017 Genre:Young Adult MysteryThere seems to be some confusion on the release date of this book. says the kindle version will be available on January 1, while and even netgalley says March 1. But, I am going to go with amazon on this one and say January 1. With that being said, this is a really good YA thriller novel. I was pretty much glued to the pages all the way through until the end and I was unable to figure out the mystery that is involved in the story. Towards t [...]

    2. I was drawn to this book by the book cover. From the book cover I thought that this story was going to be dark and suspenseful. This may still be the case but I did not stick around long enough to find out. I got about a third of the way into the story and could not continue. The conversations between Sami and the detective with the repeating back and forth or between Sami and her father were painful. I had no faith in the detective solving the case without Sami's help. It was like he was just w [...]

    3. This book is mindblowing. It is an entrancing and captivating book that kept me on the edge of my seat. This is possibly the best young adult thriller I have ever read.

    4. Not the best "thriller" I've ever read. As a matter of fact, there was nothing thrilling about it. It was very repetitive and more than a little dull the way the main character (I've already forgotten her name) spends most of her time alternating between suspecting her father and stepmother of the crime, and hating herself for suspecting them. The ending is very anticlimactic. I was suspecting a big showdown with the culprit but there was nothing. It was more like "ok, we know who did it. Now wh [...]

    5. *Review copy received from publisher*As a thriller, I thought the story is predictable and over-descriptive. This disrupted the flow of the storyline and build-up to the climax.Sami has an incredible, and totally unrealistic, memory of her first six years. This fact kept nagging at the back of my mind spoiling my enjoyment of the book.

    6. 16 year old Sami has not seen her mother in 10 years, although an occasional postcard will arrive in the mail. Her father has been under police scrutiny for years, but nothing has tied him to any crime. When new evidence appears that points to a missing person from her father's past, will Sami's faith in her father waver? Will her stepmother and stepsister be lost to Sami, just like her mother? Will a friend from the past return just in time?Splinter is a good mystery suspense thriller, taking r [...]

    7. Review will also be posted on my book blog, addictedtonovelsMy rating for this book went up the farther I got into it. I LOVE mysteries, so Splinter quickly became one of my favorite mystery novels. Originally I had thought that Splinter was going to be super predictable and easy to figure out but it wasn't! The author did a really good job of making it seem like it was totally obvious that it was this one character that was the reason behind the main character's mother missing, when really, it [...]

    8. She's holding out hope that her mother, who disappeared years ago, is still alive because she gets mysterious postcards every so often with 11/7 or 7/11 on them that was a "thing" between her and her mother. But she's doing pretty good for herself with her step-sister, stepmother, and father. It's about uncovering where her mother is. What happens to unravel the story is a bit of a slog, but the resolution ended up making this a decent thriller. I'd have to have a few teens read it to really dec [...]

    9. This book had me thoroughly entranced from very nearly the first page. It's a freebie I picked up somewhere and was a bit uncertain of it. I took it on vacation and if it weren't for the fact that I'd been so busy during vacation, I would have finished it a couple of days earlier. The mystery is a good one, the characters are realistic and likable. The family dynamics are nice and when I thought I had it all figured out, there was a piece I was missing. If you're looking for a YA mystery that is [...]

    10. The suspense was SO good. The story kept me guessing the whole time. The character relationships felt kind of shoved in at the end, but was touching at the same time. The story had a mix of suspense, some lightheartedness, and some touching moments.(view spoiler)[ There was a huge build up to who the culprit was, but the way the person was revealed kind of fell short. (hide spoiler)]

    11. I debated between 3 and 4 stars but ultimately went with 4 because I liked the way the author so easily convinced me that whatever theory I had at the time was totally off-base. I liked constantly questioning what I thought I knew! Not super action-packed but definitely a page-turner. Recommend for mystery fans!

    12. Yes there was the prerequisite good looking boy next door, but I honestly stayed up til three in the morning to finish this. Definitely worth the read. The suspense was well and truly done! A teenager comes to suspect her father and then step mother in the possible abduction of her mother when she was very young.

    13. I finished reading this one in the early hours of the morning - there was no possibility of sleeping in that last 100 pages. Lots of red herrings, lots of twists and turns, a little bit of improbability, but overall a pretty good YA thriller.

    14. The story: Sami's mother disappeared ten years ago, but the teen refuses to believe she's dead. Yet now, a decade later, clues start to surfaceues indicating her mother is dead, cludes that point to her father as the killer. Sami doesn't want to believe it--can't believe it--but can she and her best friends track down the truth without slipping into the void themselves?June Cleaver's ratings: Language PG; Violence PG; Sexual content G; Nudity G; Substance abuse PG-13; Magic & the occult G; G [...]

    15. Felt like it took forever for the story to take off and then when the climax finally came, it was dragged out too long. Overall wasn't my favourite book.

    16. A thrill ride all the way through! Let me just say, the twist at the end was really interesting, I definitely WASN'T expecting that. I really recommend reading this. W O WJust wow. Haha.

    17. Solid mystery/thriller, kept me turning the pages, the twists were interesting, a little repetitive at times, but still worth the read.

    18. Overall I enjoyed this story and getting to the heart of the mystery. While I did figure it out long before Sami did, I still enjoyed the journey there. I was right there with her when she started to finally suspect her father might not be innocent afterall. She had stood by him over the years, everytime the detectives turned up questioning him about the disappearance of his wife, Sami's mother, when she was six. Receiving postcards from around the country every year, supposedly from her mother, [...]

    19. This is a YA mystery in which Sami's mother disappeared 10 years ago when she was 6 years old. Some say she abandoned Sami, but the police think something else may have happened to her and the number one suspect is her father. While there is no evidence to prove this theory, secrets he has kept lead others, including Sami, to wonder if he did have something to do with it. The only thing Sami has are a few postcards that have shown up over the past 10 years that anyone could have sent. Sami does [...]

    20. Originally published on Lovey Dovey BooksIn Sahsa Dawn's young adult mystery Samantha is searching for her mother. Over the years she has received postcards from whatever new place her mother has been with the numbers 7 and 11, her mother's favorite numbers. But why hasn't she come back for Sami like she promised? The police believe Sami's mother would have never left without taking Sami with her, but Sami hopes that is the case because, if not, there's only one other option.Readers fall into Sa [...]

    21. **Thank you to Lerner Publishing Group for providing me a digital ARC of this novel via Netgalley for the purpose of review**This book is Yeah, fine. It's solid and it feels like it was fairly well thought through. As a family drama, Splinter brought something to the table, which is the only reason its thriller succeeds the way that it does. If the family dynamics hadn’t been so well established, this thriller would have come off as maudlin, ridiculous, or, worse, wholly predictable. Were ther [...]

    22. Amazing thriller that kept me guessing allThe way through to the end. Well written and kept me at the edge of my seat wanting to know who did it!

    23. This book was VERY suspenseful. It kept me at the edge of my seat the whole time. I would recommend this to anyone that likes suspense and mystery.
