All These Bodies

We rated this book:


It’s the summer of 1958 and fifteen people have been murdered, all completely drained of their blood. At the scene of the most recent murders, Marie, a fifteen-year-old girl is found covered in blood and arrested. As the town tries to make sense of All These Bodies and an innocent-looking girl, Marie decides to tell her side of the story, but she will only tell it to aspiring journalist, seventeen-year-old Michael. As the interview unfolds over the next couple of months, Michael discovers that the truth might be even harder to believe than the stories we tell each other to make sense of such tragedy.

I have never heard of Kendare Blake before, but after this, I’m going to be checking out all her other books. This is one of the best examples of writing I’ve ever seen. The chapters are short, but draw you in, pushing you to read just one more until next thing you know, you’ve read the whole book. The characters were fantastic, especially Michael, Marie and Percy. This story left me with so many questions, but in a good way. I look forward to discovering more of Ms. Blake’s books. I highly recommend this book.
