Teaser Tuesday (73): Complicit by Stephanie Kuehn

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

This week's teaser comes from Complicit by Stephanie Kuehn. I've literally just started this one today when I had like five minutes to spare, so I don't know how I feel about it yet, but I kind of love the way Jamie thinks. And, from the first two chapters at least, this book is reminding me a little of The House at the End of the Street with Jennifer Lawrence. Like, you think one thing's going on but it's actually a completely different thing.

My actions send the message that I'm fine, totally fine.

I'm not fine, of course. Not even close.

But like I said, it's so rarely the thought that counts.

{Complicit, Chapter 1}

Synopsis of Complicit:

Two years ago, sixteen-year-old Jamie Henry breathed a sigh of relief when a judge sentenced his older sister to juvenile detention for burning down their neighbor’s fancy horse barn. The whole town did. Because Crazy Cate Henry used to be a nice girl. Until she did a lot of bad things. Like drinking. And stealing. And lying. Like playing weird mind games in the woods with other children. Like making sure she always got her way. Or else.

But today Cate got out. And now she’s coming back for Jamie.

Because more than anything, Cate Henry needs her little brother to know this one simple truth: She’s not the crazy one and never has been.

Trust nothing and no one as you race toward the explosive conclusion of this gripping psychological thriller from the William C. Morris Award-winning author of Charm & Strange.
