Catherine stared out the window of her bedroom and thought about throwing herself out of it.
Friday 56: 
Henry grabbed a key on the left and, without a word, led them farther down the hall. Andrew was looking at her. She could feel his eyes on her more than she could see them, so she turned her phone to get a better look at his face, but then he was moving, following Henry. She went after them, not wanting to be left alone in the dark.
This week I am spotlighting Monsters Among Us by Monica Rodden. This YA is from my review stack. Here is the description from Amazon:
Fans of Sadie and You will be riveted by this compulsively readable new thriller about a survivor of dating violence who uses her newfound awareness of everyday evil to hunt for a killer.

When Catherine Ellers returns home after her first semester at college, she is seeking refuge from a night she can barely piece together, dreads remembering, and refuses to talk about. She tries to get back to normal, but just days later the murder of someone close to her tears away any illusion of safety.

Catherine feels driven to face both violent events head on in hopes of finding the perpetrators and bringing them to justice with the help of her childhood friend, Henry. Then a stranger from college arrives with her lost coat, missing driver's license--and details to help fill in the gaps in her memory that could be the key to solving both mysteries. But who is Andrew Worthington and why is he offering to help her? And what other dangerous obsessions is her sleepy town hiding?

Surrounded by secrets and lies, Catherine must unravel the truth--before this wolf in sheep's clothing strikes again.


  1. I loved both Sadie and you so this is going to have to go on my tbr!

  2. That's quite an opening! It definitely grabbed my attention. This sounds like it will be a great read. I hope you are enjoying it! Have a great weekend, Kathy.

  3. Oh my! Sounds like quite a thriller, with some reality thrown in to make it scarier! Thanks for sharing and enjoy your week :)
