Author: S.B. Hayes

‘I’m everything you’re not and I’m going to take over your life… I’m your worst nightmare.’
Katy is convinced that a girl she had seen on a bus is following her every move. She believes that she is stalking her. Katy's life is almost perfect. She is dating the boy of her dreams and has great friends but that all changes when Genevieve turns up. She starts to flirt with her gorgeous new boyfriend and has turned her friends against her. What does she want? Why does she hate Katy so much? With the help of her childhood friend Luke who is a reporter she goes on a journey to discover what Genevieve wants but what she discovers will change everything forever.
This was a great psychological thriller. I thought that Genevieve had a certain vulnerability to her that stopped the reader from completely disliking her. Katy was a strong character who did not give up without a fight. Great characters overall.
This was not unpredictable but I was still impressed by some of the plot twists just the same.
