“You’re going to die”

Shelley Marano is an ordinary, unexceptional high school senior…until the day she receives a cryptic text message, and her world tilts sideways. Now she’s in real danger, although she doesn’t know who would want her dead, or why. As she starts to unravel the mystery, the truth about who she really is proves to be more frightening than she ever imagined. With the lives of her and her friends hanging in the balance, one thing is certain:

Nothing will ever be the same.

Packed with suspense, What Lies Within is a page-turning, plot-driven rollercoaster ride that fans of Stephen King, James Patterson and Rick Yancey will be sure to enjoy.

My Thoughts:

I was sent a copy by the author in exchange for an honest review. 

Shelley has a normal life, it's her senior year of high school, she has a par-time job and is waiting on her letter of acceptance for the college she has been dreaming to go to. But that all changes with one text message that say "You're going to die". Shelley doesn't know who would send her that or why anyone would want to hurt her. 

This book had me in the edge of my seat from the first page to the last! Morris writing is phenomenal it was so unique and I swear at moments it was like I was watching a movie as I read. The characters were amazing, Shelley is such a strong lead and I loved her development trough out the book. I think Shelley's best friend Winston was my favorite character his sarcastic sense of humor and the way he protected and loved Shelley no matter what the outcome was beautiful, who doesn't want a Winston in their life. The ending hit me like a ton of bricks I wasn't expecting it at all, I really wished the outcome was different, but I felt that the ending worked well with the entire novel. I can't wait to read more books by James his writing is superb. If you're looking for a good thriller that will have you in the edge of your seat from beginning to end look no further this is it.
