YA Spotlight: Five Survive
By Michelle Parker, Young Adult Services Librarian
If you are looking for a mystery that will keep you guessing and reading late into the night, look no further than "Five Survive" by Holly Jackson.
Red and her five friends are on a road trip to the beach for Spring Break when disaster strikes on an isolated road. The RV's tires are shot out by a sniper who is threatening the six until they give up a particular secret. Will Red and her friends be able to give him what he wants before the deadline at dawn? As the eight hours pass, find out the deadly secrets of each, who will turn on who, and ultimately, which of them will make it out alive.
While the second half of this book is an exciting whirl-wind, be prepared to push through the first half. If you enjoy this one, check out Holly Jackson's series, A Good Girl's Guide to Murder, in my opinion, even more of a thrill ride than this one!
