Review of Justice by Jade Varden

Synopsis: "A House of Cards...

When you build an entire life on a foundation of lies, it only takes one truth for the whole thing to come crashing down. I never invited the truth in. I never went searching for it. I never had any reason to suspect that the two people I loved most were dishonest with me every second of every day.

I made one bad decision, and in a single day my entire world changed. If I'm ever going to discover the truth about myself and my parents, I have to trace all the lies back to their source. I have to try to find the truth that they're hiding.

The more I discover about myself, and my past, the more I realize that lies really are better than the truth. But now that I know the lies are all around me, I can't stop until I've discovered them all. I'll pull each lie away, one by one, and examine it to see what's underneath…until this house of cards crumbles into dust at my feet.

I just hope I can survive the crash."

My Review: This book totally caught me off guard. I don't normally read mystery but do read a lot of young adult so thought I would give it a try. I completely forgot I was reading a mystery until things started twisting around towards the end! I was so absorbed in the story and the characters that I couldn't put the book down (I ended up hiding my kindle under the covers so my hubby wouldn't see me reading when I should have been sleeping), I finished it in a single day. The story builds and builds in intensity that you can't wait to follow Rain and see what happens next only to be left with a cliffhanger ending! The characters were so rich and real, I felt like I was watching a movie or even involved in their lives. I admit that some of the twists were a little predictable but it didn't matter as you moved on to the many other plot lines. I really can't explain how surprisingly great Justice was for me. I really hope you will give it a shot.
My Rating: I really can't explain to you how excited I am about this book! It was so well written, the plot lines flow beautifully and the characters are so real. I give it a rating of Four Paws and a Stump Wag!!
Justice was sent to me by the author for an honest review.
