ever considered committing a crime in order to sure your spot in college In Accomplice by Eirrean Corrigan, the author attempts to have a gripping plot about two girls faking a kidnapping in order to get into college, but as the book progresses Corrigan s story becomes monotonous and falls apart She intends to create suspense with the plot, but the story becomes unbelievable and somewhat tedious The characters are expected to be relatable to, but they are flat, and you never know what they are thinking Also, the dialogue seems to act as filler, and really adds no content to the book Corrigan attempts to make the characters relatable by using a topic that all teenagers will face, college However, she describes the characters in such a way that they become somewhat fake, and unlike normal people Also, the author uses dialogue to try and allow the reader to enter the character s mind, but it seems useless and becomes just filler For instance, Corrigan describes the mother, but is repetitive and confusing She writes, My mom is great and all, but she wasn t the really waiting0with cookies at the door kind of mother If it was before four she was usually at some scrap booking class If it was after, she had her appointment with Oprah But that day, I could see her from all the way down by the mailboxes She stood on the steps, her hands on her hips 36 Corrigan doesn t need to describe every detail about the main character s mother and since she does do this it becomes boring.The author s inability to make interesting characters also affects the plot Corrigan has an interesting idea for a story in that, two girls fake a kidnapping to get into college, but her characters are unbelievable, so the plot falls apart too The reader ends up not believing that these events are possible, and as you continue to read, the story just drags on and on, and there is no suspense to keep the pages turning.Corrigan fails to keep the reader and my attention with her new book Accomplice She is unable to make the characters relatable, and also fails to make a suspenseful gripping plot was intrigued by the sound of Accomplice when I first read the back cover It wasn t like anything I ve read before so I was really excited to get into it.The book is told from the point of view of Finley Jacobs, know as Finn, and follows her from just after the disappearance of her best friend Chloe Caffery Finn s the one who s having to deal with all the questions, the police, the media, their parents and classmates pretending like she s just as worried and concerned with Chloe being miss was intrigued by the sound of Accomplice when I first read the back cover It wasn t like anything I ve read before so I was really excited to get into it.The book is told from the point of

media, their parents and classmates pretending like she s just as worried and concerned with Chloe being missing, when in reality she knows Chloe s hiding out in Finn s grandma s basement reading trashy novels and eating junk food.The girls thought they s planned for every possibility of the staged kidnapping but it didn t take long for things to get out of hand and Finn s the one who s got to deal with it alone On the emotional rollercoster that becomes Finn s life, the reader really gets to know her character, as well as that of Chloe, seen through a best friends eyes It s hard not to like these two girls, despite their plan, as we see their insecurities To start with I did think them to be a little immature for how old they were supposed to be, in fact until a short way into the book when it said that they were in their Junior year, I thought them to be about twelve or thirteen However, through the book, asdetails about the reason for doing what they did it doesn t seem so much Also, they live in a small farming town and so naturally, wouldn t be so street savvy In fact, it was refreshing to read of girls this age not being completely obsessed with boys and sex That s not to say there wasn t a little romantic interest but it didn t take over the story or the characters.There was also a good cast of other characters including omg parents Actual real, present and developed parents In a YA book I really liked Eireann Corrigan s writing style, it s simple with lots of dialogue and not too much overly flowery prose It was easy to read and one of those books that you just had to keep reading a bitOnthan one occasion I found myself reading well after I was supposed to have stopped to do something else like sleep.I will definitely be looking out for other books from this author I m currently in my last year of high school, and in the next month, I will have submitted my applications to University I know that Canada is nowhere near as competitve as the US when it comes to Univeristy, but it is still a lot of pressure So i feel like I was at the perfect point to read this book, because I could relate to the girls, and even though their plan was completely insane and selfish, i felt like I could understand where they were coming from Chloe and Finn are honour roll stud I m currently in my last year of high school, and in the next month, I will have submitted my applications to University I know that Canada is nowhere near as competitve as the US when it comes to Univeristy, but it is still a lot of pressure So i feel like I was at the perfect point to read this book, because I could relate to the girls, and even though their plan was completely insane and selfish, i felt like I could understand where they were coming from Chloe and Finn are honour roll students who are concerned that it just isn t enough They decide that to really stand out to a university, they need to be something extraordinary They need to be someone that everybody knows So they decide to fake an abduction Chloe will go missing, and Finn will be the heroic friend that finds her At first, it seems simple They have everything meticulously planned down to a tee Then things start to get complicated Finn is guilt ridden over the pain that she is causing people and all of the lies that she tells She second guesses the plan, but Chloe continues to push her Things get heated when a local boy is pulled in as a suspect, when Finn knows very well that he is innocent, but cannot prove it without incriminating herself I love the conflicts that grow in this book, and all that I wish is that we could have seenof the aftermath You could almost have a whole second book about what comes after the last page This story wasn t what i expected When the jacket cover said that there would be complications, i thought that Chloe was actually going to be kidnapped or murdered, but it wasabout the psychological aspects of what the girls did, and I think that it was very well written There are some parts that were a bit unbelievable, but overall, it was a very interesting and entertaining read When I first found the book I was already very intrigued from the book cover It looked very interesting yet simple Eireann Corrigan does a great job in letting the reader understand each character and what they were thinking and also helps us understand each character s personality The book goes with the flow very well, there never is a really sudden or bad transition but the book goes very smoothly I love mystery and crime books, so for me, this book was good, but I believed it could be bet When I first found the book I was already very intrigued from the book cover It looked very interesting yet simple Eireann Corrigan does a great job in letting the

entrance me And after a while, the book could get a little boring Eireann Corrigan did an amazing job in describing the scene, it made it easy for the readers to imagine what s happening But she didn t explain much about the appearance of the characters.In Accomplice, two kids, Chloe and Finn are trying to get into a good college They have done everything possible aceing classes, joining community service but they don t think it s enough If they want to stand out, they need to do something different, something that the media would notice They decide to fake a disappearance, that Chloe would be kidnapped and Finn would be the hero that finds and saves her, since they had a lot of experience with this while playing pretend games They both knew that this would affect their lives dramatically, that they would hurt their family, friends and the school, but they thought they had planned everything out, perfectly, that nothing was going to go wrong But it did Things went very wrong and did not go as planned and what was once innocent was now deadly They had to make a plan B, and quick which made evenproblems They not only hurt others, but they hurt themselves The ending of this book was not what I expected, but don t take it the wrong way, it doesn t mean I didn t like it But it was just a bit surprising I would like to read a part 2 of this book I wished it had gone on a bit longer.Accomplice is a book that issuitable for readers aged 12 16 There is a bit of inappropriate language in the book formature readers I rated this book a 4 out of 5 It was a really good book, but not great Especially when you know who is behind everything But overall, this book was enjoyable D Have you guys ever seen a British film called The Hole It s about a group of teenagers who hatch a plan to disappear during a school trip, not knowing that their actions will forever change all of their lives Accomplice reminded me of that right from the beginning, which is good for me, because I love that movie.In Accomplice, best friends Finn and Chloe come up with a plan for Chloe to disappear, making it look like a kidnapping It s unnerving to see how meticulous and calculating they are, Have you guys ever seen a British film called The Hole It s about a group of teenagers who hatch a plan to disappear during a school trip, not knowing that their actions will forever change all of their lives Accomplice reminded me of that right from the beginning, which is good for me, because I love that movie.In Accomplice, best friends Finn and Chloe come up with a plan for Chloe to disappear, making it look like a kidnapping It s unnerving to see how meticulous and calculating they are, not to mention how selfish They put their parents, friends and town through utter hell, and never seem to fully realise the extent of what they re doing These are supposed to be clever girls, with aspirations of attending a good college and getting a decent education Instead they make the worst decisions known to man, ruin lives and endanger their own.The plot itself is very well thought out, though a couple of things bothered me Chloe s hiding place seemed far too convenient, and the fact that no one discovered her didn t seem realistic In fact, the whole plan seemed a little too easy, especially given the tiny town where both girls lived I don t think disappearing would have been that easy but, having never done it, I m no authority on the subject.Corrigan s writing is noticeably good, and her characterisation is top notch She made me follow these girls through every bad decision and, most importantly, she made me trust them Over the course of the novel, my feelings towards Finn and Chloe changed, until finally everything fell into place and I understood the meaning behind their plan If I read it again, I think I d pick up clues earlier on, which I didn t think to look for the first time around.Accomplice is a book that will make you think, and one that will make you question trust and loyalty Friendships have to have boundaries, because without them things fall apart, just like it did for Finn and Chloe As the front of the books says how far would you go for a friend It was a perfect plan, but then it all went wrong When their college prep advisor tells them that it takesthan good grades and community service to get into the best schools, Finn and Chloe decide to make themselves and their college essays very special They stage Chloe s kidnapping, hiding her in the basement of Finn s grandmother s house because she is out of town It was supposed to be simple, but their carefully staged deception starts to wear on Finn as she is forced to lie to every It was a perfect plan, but then it all went wrong When their college prep advisor tells them that it takesthan good grades and community service to get into the best schools, Finn and Chloe decide to make themselves and their college essays very special They stage Chloe s kidnapping, hiding her in the basement of Finn s grandmother s house because she is out of town It was supposed to be simple, but their carefully staged deception starts to wear on Finn as she is forced to lie to everyone, carefully staging her emotions and reactions to not only keep the lie going but to make sure that they get enough attention from the media When CNN shows up to cover the kidnapping, Finn and Chloe know that it cannot end the way they had planned and are forced to make dreadful choices Don t pick up this page turner without clearing your day first, it is impossible to put down With a great premise, the book opens with Finn in the midst of the situation already There is little time to draw breath as readers are immediately plunged into a faked kidnapping staged by two very smart but very naive girls The drive to have a bit of fame combined with the pressures of college applications make for a potent combination for a book The story is told from Finn s point of view as she deals with attending school and lying to everyone in her life, including Chloe s parents and her own Finn is in denial about a lot of things throughout the book, facing complicated feelings about her best friend This tension about their relationship and what is at the heart of it makes the book evencompelling as Finn tries to navigate a situation of her own making.This riveting novel is tightly written The book builds tension as Finn struggles with her emotions and with the fallout from the kidnapping It is not breakneck paced, rather it is woven into an intense read Ideal for booktalking to teens, this book will have everyone right from the premise It completely lives up to its promise as a thrilling look at lies and fame Appropriate for ages 14 17 3.5 stars The strongest qualities of this book was its suspenseful story and original plot In other areas such as character development it did not quite cut it Accomplice is about best friends Finley and Chloe, two determined teenagers willing to do

best friend But as the days pass and things get complicated, will the girls back out Or even worse, get caught I give major kudos to the author for creating such an original story and making it work The idea of two high students so obsessed with their studies that they would actually do something illegal it is unsettling, but realistic all the same It makes me question where to draw the line in academics, and friendship Also, the suspense of whether or not they would get caught had me on edge and flipping the pages to finish the book.While Accomplice did possess problems, like unsympathetic side characters, I still recommend it to anyone seeking a refreshing read &Download ☔ Accomplice ✗ Would you fake your own kidnapping to get into a good school Finn and Chloe have it all figured out Their school guidance counselor has told everyone that it s not enough to get good grades or do community service any kids like that are everywhere, and colleges are bored of them So what do you do Chloe decides they should get attention another way She and Finn will stage her own disappearance and then Finn will be the only who finds and saves her What college wouldn t want them after that kind of attention It seems like a good plan until things start going very wrong I found this tale of an amazingly hare brained teenage scheme to become famous, and thereforeeasily gain entrance into a top tier Eastern university by leap frogging over the millions of applicants, to be riveting What fascinated me the most was the narrator s rather naive belief that this could actually work, and her resolve to maintain the illusion even when so many innocent people were being destroyed emotionally, or their futures were being wrecked.The novel highlighted the self absor I found this tale of an amazingly hare brained teenage scheme to become famous, and thereforeeasily gain entrance into a top tier Eastern university by leap frogging over the millions of applicants, to be riveting What fascinated me the most was the narrator s rather naive belief that this could actually work, and her resolve to maintain the illusion even when so many innocent people were being destroyed emotionally, or their futures were being wrecked.The novel highlighted the self absorption of the teenage mind, the inability at times to realize the effect one s actions have on, well, everything and everyone So many times Finn could have stopped the game and told the truth The issue of truth is front and center in this novel, as is friendship, loyalty, betrayal, and how one judges someone to be of good character I kept wondering if what was imagined would actually turn out to happen because these girls were so stupid And the twists at the end were worthy of an adult mystery novel.Whether these girls could have actually pulled this off is almost irrelevant, as the book is really a character study Who turns out to be the most admirable will not surprise you Chloe and Finn are in high school and attend one of those getting into college seminars They ve got good grades and plenty of extracurricular activities, but turns out that may not be good enough.So they develop a plan They re going to fake Chloe s disappearance and presumed abduction After a few days, Finn s going to miraculously find her and then they will have the best college essays EVER.But they didn t think of a

will be suspected of kidnapping and or killing her And they didn t think about how hard it will be for Finn to lie to her parents or to Chloe s.I really enjoyed this book While reading it, I couldn t wait to find out if they d get away with it or if Finn would crack and tell I wanted to know what would happen after Chloe was found and if the police would buy their story.Really fun read, but probably not the best way to get into college
