Review: Going Under
Going Under by S Walden
Release date: March 14, 2013
My rating:Brooke Wright has only two goals her senior year at Charity Run High School: stay out of trouble and learn to forgive herself for the past. Forgiveness proves elusive, and trouble finds her anyway when she discovers a secret club at school connected to the death of her best friend. She learns that swim team members participate in a “Fantasy Slut League,” scoring points for their sexual acts with unsuspecting girls.
Brooke, wracked with guilt over her friend’s death, decides to infiltrate the league by becoming one of the “unsuspecting girls,” and exact revenge on the boys who stole away her best friend. An unexpected romance complicates her plans, and her dogged pursuit of justice turns her reckless as she underestimates just how far the boys will go to keep their sex club a secret.
(This is a New Adult fiction book with mature themes. It contains graphic sex and language and a description of sexual violence.)
I haven’t read a book like this. It is completely original and riveting. I was hooked with this book to the point that I literally didn’t put it down until I finished it. It is one of those books that has you rooting for the good guy all of the way through. There are characters that you will want to like and hate at the same time. There are characters that you hate from the get-go. There are characters that you like or love from the word go!
This book is so full of ups and downs. It is gut-wrenching in some areas. It definitely will have you on the edge of your seats at many parts. I found myself so full of emotions throughout this book. There are so many emotions to experience in this book. I think you will have almost every emotion that you can possibly think of.
Between Brooke’s internal battles and those around her harboring secrets that could potentially put her in harms way, you will constantly be waiting for the ball to drop!
The deception and retribution throughout the book is undeniably original and enthralling! I absolutely loved, loved this book! I will be recommending this book to everyone I know that likes to read.
