In The Blood by Lisa Unger | Book Review

In The Blood by Lisa Unger

Reading Group: 17 years+

Personal Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars

Given Summary: A BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR! Silver Falchion Award Winner, Goodreads Choice Awards Nominee, Suspense Magazine Best Books, Sun Sentinel Best Mystery Novels, Indie Next Pick and Amazon Best Book of the Month!

Liar, liar, pants on fire . . . College senior Lana Granger has told so many lies about her past that the truth seems like a distant, cloudy nightmare.  But she meets her match when she begins babysitting for a volatile, manipulative eleven-year-old boy.  Soon after Lana takes the job, her close friend Beck mysteriously disappears.  Lana instantly begins fabricating stories - to friends, to police, to herself.  Why doesn't her account jibe with those of eye-witnesses?  Lana will do anything to bury the truth about that night ... and about her life.  But someone else knows her secrets.  And he's dying to tell.

Cover: The cover of this books has someone, presumably Lane, on the cover.  It's dark and mysterious which is pretty much how you can sum up this whole book.

My Review:  A friend of mine gave me this book to read and I really enjoyed it.  It was a mystery so I was trying to figure everything out before I got to the end.  I was able to figure out quite a few things, but there was still something on the last page I wasn't expecting.  I don't want to give anything away because it is a book that tries to see how much of a detective you are, but I will say that this book dealt with some big issues that not many people can relate to, but everyone can learn more about.  Everyone has family issues, but not everyone you meet has two killers in their family.  And plenty of people have mental issues or confusion about sexuality, but this book brings it to another level that keeps you captivated throughout.  Like the title says, some things about us are there from the day we're born; it's in the blood.  I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves mysteries or crime shows.  It's a great read that keeps you guessing until the very end.
