Book Review | The Yellow Room by Jess Vallance

the yellow room by jess vallance review
My Rating: 8/10
Published: July 28th 2016
Pages: 288
Genre: Young Adult/Thriller
Amazon Goodreads 

The Yellow Room focuses on sixteen year old Anna who one day receives a letter from her father's girlfriend telling her that he has died. Anna hasn't seen her father since she was four so when his girlfriend, Edie asks to meet Anna can't help but be intrigued by it.

Edie is a very eccentric and quirky lady, but also very loving and friendly, the complete opposite to Anna's mum who is cold and quite often wrapped up in her job that she doesn't even noticed Anna's existence. Edie and Anna very quickly form a friendship and Anna wonders if she can tell Edie the biggest secret she has been keeping from everyone, even her best friends.

I've read a lot of adult thrillers in my time but never any YA ones so I was excited to pick this up and I wasn't dissapointed. It has all the suspense and twist turns of it's adult counterparts, but it's not as graphic or as disturbing as some adult thrillers can be.

There are plenty of unseen twists and turns in the plot and it is incredibly well written. I found myself reading for way longer than I had intended to because I was so keen to find out what was going to happen next.

It's always hard to review books of this nature as you don't want to give too much of the plot away, all I will say is this is definitely worth giving a go and I enjoyed it a lot. I've been reading a lot of contemporary YA recently so it was nice to read something a little bit on the darker side!
