Book Review - The End of Everything by Megan Abbott

The End of Everything is a real page turner – I read it in one sitting. 

It’s Alice Sebold’s The Lovely Bones meets Craig Silvey’s Jasper Jones. 

Lizzie and Evie are 13 years old, neighbours and best friends. 

They’re inseparable – until one day Evie goes missing and Lizzie discovers that things aren’t always quite what they seem. 

Be warned – this book’s subject matter is dark and disturbing. 

I felt uncomfortable with certain elements of the story and Abbott’s intentions gave me a sense of unease. 

Despite being narrated by a 13 year-old girl, this is a book for adults, not for teens.
