The six teenagers who make up the Lit Lair have it made. A beachfront mansion, millions of followers, stunning good looks, and sponsorship deals worth more money than they ever dreamed. They live together, making videos about their perfect lives.
Except it’s not so perfect after one of them turns up dead in the infinity pool. When the group TikTok account starts posting cryptic messages, the police stop looking outside the house for suspects—and start looking straight at them. Everyone in the Lit Lair had reasons why their lives would have been easier without Sydney Reynolds.
But only one of them killed her.
I have mixed feelings about this book. While it had its moments of enjoyment, it ultimately didn’t meet my high expectations. The twist in the story was definitely a highlight, but unfortunately, the momentum of the narrative seemed to falter afterward, causing the story to drag on.
Despite my reservations, I still believe that with some adjustments and further development, this story could truly shine. Exploring the dynamics of these characters in a high school setting, while delving deeper into the horror elements, could add depth and intrigue to the overall narrative.
Additionally, focusing on the challenges and pressures faced by young influencers could provide a unique and compelling storyline that resonates with audiences. With the right execution, this story has the potential to captivate viewers and leave them eagerly anticipating each new episode.
