I was lucky enough to get an advanced review copy of Ten After Closing by Jessica Bayliss and I am thrilled to have gotten to read this book. This is not the first time that I have read something by Ms. Bayliss, but it is the longest of her works that I have read and I really can't wait to read more novels by her. Ten After Closing is a gripping YA novel that is told from two points of view and from two timelines, one moving forward and one moving backwards to show the events leading to what happens in a cafe ten minutes after closing. This is a crime drama, but it is also so much more. It weaves a complex tale of teenagers struggling with their parents, their relationships, their lives, their futures and then being thrown into a terrifying situation on top all of that. This novel is a thrilling ride that readers of all ages should take. 5/5 Stars for sure!
Ten After Closing will be available on September 4, 2018.
