Today’s prompt: The most surprising plot twist or ending
There are a few books I could pick for this category, but I’ll stick with the one I’ve read most recently. Kimberly Derting’s The Body Finder has a really cool twist at the end. I won’t reveal it because I don’t like giving spoilers.
It’s a supernatural YA book about a girl who has the ability to find dead bodies. She stumbles upon a murder victim and it’s up to her to solve the murder because only she can find the bodies and trace the killer. It’s also a pretty sweet love story – she falls in love with her best friend. I’m always a sucker for that kind of plot.
As with most YA books, parts of it feel rushed and the characters could have been developed better, but the twist at the end is genuinely surprising and the suspense throughout the novel makes it worthwhile. It’s a quick read, so I’d recommend it if you like romance and thrillers.
