this is the worst thing ever. what the fuck

the first like 70 pages of the book were just terrible to get through. they were soooo boring and there was nothing more annoying than pip acting completely out of character??? like yes i get it, she saw someone die, but????? she's taking drugs??? it was just so boring and so weird like this is supposed to be a mystery thriller ????? what

then it got better with the DT killer stuff but the reveal was so obvious lmfao who didn't see that coming. everything went downhill super fast once she killed him. like it was all good up until ravi came and they decided to do a cover up??? i thought that he would come and shake some sense in to her??? what the fuck????? so fucking stupid i actually cannot i'm so angry rn i just can't read this. it's so frustrating to see how dumb they're acting. like yes the police are useless but this was obviously self defense as HE KIDNAPPED HER omfg WHY ARE THEY SO DENSE.

in summary: first part boring, second part stupid.

i'm done

I thoroughly enjoyed this series! If you are looking for a sign as to whether you should complete this series, please look no further and read this book!

Spoiler
I was expecting the third book to be more lacklustre and repetitive but boy was I wrong. The twists and turns it took really made this one a page turner for me. Having gone through so much with Pip and Ravi, you really feel for the characters and this last story really made me #teampip despite what happened. 

There were so many things that felt like a full circle moment and tying up loose knots from earlier in the story. This series could probably also have been an adult series because it really explores a lot about moral relativism and how things are not just mutually exclusive and can co-exist.

Super super recommend this series!
