I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.
DiSemblance starts out as your typical young adult book with Jason, a 17-year-old who has a crush on his neighbor, Boston. It soon turns out to be more of a suspenseful murder mystery. Once I got into it, it was difficult to put down.
Shanae Branham’s writing style is easy to follow and is geared more to young adults. I like that the chapters are short since I often have to do this or that in between reading and the short chapters help with having to set the book down for a minute or two.
The story is told from 3 points of view: Jason, Boston, and the detective. This is a great idea and makes the story not only more suspenseful but also makes it more difficult to put down.
Anyone who likes mystery suspense will love DiSemblance.
