Book Review: That Weekend by Kara Thomas

Three teens go up a mountain, but only one comes back down . . . and she can’t remember what happened. Is she a victim? Or a killer? An unreliable narrator? Or is her convenient case of amnesia true?

Mystery abounds in this book, and although my original hypothesis for what happened “That Weekend” turned out to be true, making this YA mystery thriller somewhat predictable, the why behind what happened?!?! I never in a million years would have seen that coming! I was totally blindsided by the twist at the end. I’ve read several books by this author before and have discovered she can be counted on for a fun, entertaining tale.

From Goodreads:

It was supposed to be the perfect prom weekend getaway. But it’s clear something terrible happened when Claire wakes up alone and bloodied on a hiking trail with no memory of the past forty-eight hours.

Three went up the mountain, but only one came back.

Now everyone wants answers – most of all, Claire. She remembers Friday night, but after that… nothing. And now Kat and Jesse – her best friends – are missing.

That weekend changes everything.

What happened on the mountain? And where are Kat and Jesse? Claire knows the answers are buried somewhere in her memory, but as she’s learning, everyone has secrets – even her best friends. And she’s pretty sure she’s not going to like what she remembers.
