Cambria Brockman: Tell Me Everything

Ake place on college campuses They are little microcosm of society verything always seemed heightened because it is contained This was no The New Left the Origins of the Cold War exceptionWhen Malin begins school at anlite New England college she s determined to try and make friends She uickly finds herself in a close group of six who remain friends throughout school But Malin has to work harder at maintaining friendships than the others And Malin has secrets By Senior Day four years later one of them will be dead Told through the yes of the introverted uiet and fascinating Malin this is a novel of suspense you won t want to missWhat a bookThe story is told in alternating timelines between freshman year as Malin forms friendships with the group of six Senior Day where the twisted path these friendships have taken unfold through uick stories leading up to the murder and stories from Malin s past that cover secrets she has worked to keep hiddenThis narrative structure was perfectly xecuted as the bits of stories we learned about La Fleur du Mal each character slowly became connected leading to a shockingnding that truly took me by surprise Sometimes telling a story out of seuence can be jarring but that didn t happen here Instead the characters became rounded as the book progressedMalin is an interesting and uniue narrator Her beauty is in stark contrast to who she is someone who is comfortable in the shadows letting others shine When Malin starts college she pushes herself to try to make friends In the past she has always preferred being alone a fact that made her parents worry about her With a fresh start Malin is determined to be normal and have people to rely onAnd despite Malin s reserved nature and distance from others she does develop friendships Seeing the characters through Malin s Graphic Design Rules eyes was interesting because Malin is a person who reads others and tries to understand what they want what they are hiding and why they are doing things But Malin herself never seems fully reliable Through her monologue we come to understand that Malin has some secrets in her past that she hopes the others won t learn Malin doesn tven share them with us right awayAnd the Reckless ending I have to be careful here because I don t want to give any hints I saw another reviewer describe thending as a twist so uiet you never saw it coming and I think that is the perfect way to describe it A brilliant debut novel I will be looking for whatever Cambria Brockman does next There is something imminent surrounding us and we have no idea it s there Tomorrow morning we will sit down for breakfast at the dining hall as we always do and realize one of us is goneWhat a pleasant surprise I had almost given up on suspenseful debuts but this one felt worthy of my time Tell Me Everything doesn t masuerade as the next insert popular psych thriller but instead simply presents itself as an Trickster engrossing character study following six friends at university together Sure there is a vein of suspense that grows as the novel progresses and there were a couple of twists at thend that got me YASSS but the true shining moments of this story are the atmospheric details and the captivating interactions between these young adults Also may I add that these novels the ones that do not advertise a massive twist you won t see coming tend to be the ones that are able to sneak a few smaller twists past me which is SO much Killers Prey (Conard County enjoyable than the large predictable flops Sips teaLet s start with the setting Guys I am a sucker for any novel set at universityspecially if there are secrets and drama and murrrderrrrs Muahahaha The New England college town we are dropped into felt just as much a character in this book as the people we follow for four years and the Mr Big ever changing weather and local culture really turned the story into a cinematicvent in my brain The author clearly is knowledgable of the area and she took what she knew and turned it into a fictional Flori în păr experience on that began warm and inviting but uickly turned unnerving and dangerous Our story is told from one POV but the book jumps around between Freshman Year Senior Year and Texas 1997 Even though this is a character driven novel feeling literary at times the pace was fairly uick with many stories being told at once In the present we are learning the backstory of how our cast of characters became friends at the beginning of their collegexperience while also learning their personal history although there is a greater buildup to our narrator Malin s past This was a delightful and fun way to tell the story as it has a classic feel but always seems to work The nding for me was very satisfactory I cannot go into great detail but Brockman chooses to leave us with a few future details involving Malin and her gang while also dropping a bomb that leaves us to wonder what and how those future things happen While a few of the twists are fairly predictable I don t think those are the ones meant to shock or surprise us in fact I believe those twists are the ones the reader is supposed to assume and as we grow closer to the revelation we feel the growing dread uite like a train approaching at a dangerous speed with no way of stopping Highly recommended for those looking to find suspenseful literary fiction with unlikable but compulsively readable characters and a light mysteryReview copy furnished via the publisher.
