Deceived by Julie Anne Lindsay

Deceived by Julie Anne Lindsey
This is a YA thriller/mystery/romance. Elle is 17 and has moved around frequently with her father whose job has required frequent moves since Elle's mother died when she was six years old. Since then, she has had nightmares and now she is a caffeine addict to try to avoid sleep. This year, her overprotective father has put her in a private prep school where students live on campus for her senior year. Several times she feels like she is being followed, and Brian, a seriously hot guy who she met at a flea market in another town and who seemed to like her, mysteriously shows up and enrolls at her school and is in a lot of her classes, but ignores her other than when he tells her outside of school to be careful. I stayed up late to finish this book, so it is gripping, but many of the "facts" just don't quite add up and the editing needs a bit of help. The book seems like it has potential, but lacks polish. I am guessing that it may be self-edited and self-published. I think that a good editor would have been helpful. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
