Code by Angie Thompson | Review

Hi friends! I hope y’all are doing great! School has been tough to conquer lately, but I’m finally getting the hang of a subject that I’ve been having trouble with ever since the semester started.

Today I’m sharing a review of the short story Code by Angie Thompson. I know I’ve been posting nothing but reviews lately, but bear with me through this review and one more on Wednesday, and then after that I have a couple of fun posts scheduled! Thanks for your patience. ❤

(also real quick if any of you have blog post ideas of any sort PLEASE put them down below because I need them :P)

Onto the review!

P.S. I know y’all are probably wondering about that blog redesign change I was talking about! It’s still in the works- I’ve asked someone to design a header for me, but now I’m thinking of doing it myself. So it’s taking a little longer than planned. It’ll happen sometime this year though!

41068054A sinister threat. A shocking betrayal. A single rose.

Jan has poured her grief over her brother’s death into finishing his work—crippling the terrible system they’d unknowingly helped to build. But when a strange gift beckons her to seek out Kevin’s betrayer, will she find the answers she needs? Or will hate and anger shatter everything she holds dear?

This is such a creative book! The idea of betrayal within a family always intrigues me, so I was really excited to pick this up. And I wasn’t disappointed! The pacing was excellent for being such a short story (34 pages), and the plot was thought out well. The cover is really unique, and I love that there’s a flower on the cover, which ties into a little something in the book. I found the characters to be well-developed; I understood quickly the why behind their fears and doubts, which is always great to see in a book. 

I would have liked to see some more backstory at the beginning of the book, since I was definitely confused at first as to what was going on. As the book went on I understood what was happening though. 🙂
