The comparison to Get Out and Gossip Girl were definitely accurate on this one. There are many times where books are compared to other books, TV Shows or movies and it’s usually not accurate or over exaggerated. I really enjoyed this book.
In the beginning, it was a little slow to start, but it quickly started to pick up towards the middle to the end. And man, it definitely keeps your attention the whole way to the finish line. I love the how character driven this book is. The characters are well developed and there aren’t too many characters in the mix to where you would get confused. We have our two main characters, Devon and Chiamaka. They take us on their journey of their senior year being a part of their senior elite class. It’s their final year of high school, so what could go wrong? An anonymous bully of course!!
This book was written lovely and I am excited to read more books by Faridah Àbíké-Íyímidé in the future.
Have you read Ace of Spades? What were your thoughts?
