I was dead for 13 minutes.

I don't remember how I ended up in the icy water but I do know this - it wasn't an accident and I wasn't suicidal.

They say you should keep your friends close and your enemies closer, but when you're a teenage girl, it's hard to tell them apart. My friends love me, I'm sure of it. But that doesn't mean they didn't try to kill me. Does it?

13 MINUTES by Sarah Pinborough is a gripping psychological thriller about people, fears, manuiplation and the power of the truth. A stunning read, it questions our relationships - and what we really know about the people closest to us . . .

A good YA novel with a dark finale

This is one of the better YA books that I have read recently - although I would hesitate to recommend it to anyone under the age of 16 - as it deals with some quite difficult issues.  There is a lot of swearing and a fair amount of sex in this book - which usually puts me off books - yet I found this an addictive read.  I genuinely did not see the way the book was going and was surprised by the twist when it came.  However, the end of the book is very dark and is not a pleasant read - I don't want to say too much as I don't want to spoil anything for potential readers.  The main characters are, on the whole, a nasty bunch of teenage girls but you can understand why they are like this.  An addictive read and one I would recommend to older teenagers and adults.
