The Blackbird Season by Kate Moretti
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I received a free advanced reader's copy of The Blackbird Season by Kate Moretti, through NetGalley (thank you!). I read this book in two days because I simply could not put it down! It intrigued me from Page 1, and the suspense kept building!This was a true "whodunnit" mystery with plenty of plot twists and turns. The story is about a missing girl, Lucia, who has implicated her teacher, Nate, of having an affair with her. She then goes missing. The story is told from the points of view of: Nate (the high school teacher and accused), his wife, Alecia, their family friend and fellow teacher, Bridget, and the missing girl, Lucia. There are dark secrets looming underneath the surface that may change your mind when you feel convinced you know who caused Lucia to go missing, and why. The characters were so well-developed that you will feel a kinship with each one. There is also an element of the mystical, leaving you to wonder about the natural order of things. If you liked reads such as Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train, you will love this one even more!
