Review: SOS - Summer of St.George - Briana Gaitlin

If you are in the mood for a good psychological thriller and one with an ending that you will be like OMFG I didn't see that coming, then this is the read for you. I finished this book a few days ago and am still reeling after the ending. If you have read We Were Liars by E.Lockhart or seen the movie Dream House with Daniel Craig; this is similar but not. In SOS we meet Poppy and Murphy who are cousins and were born on the same day, the pair all their lives have been inseparable. When they were seventeen, Poppy made a pact with Murphy that they would live the following year with no consequences and spend one last summer at Poppy's beach house on St.George and then on their 18th Birthday they would kill themselves as neither one wanted to live without the other.  Murphy has arrived, and Poppy is already there, the girls are armed with their summer rules. One of them is NOT TO FALL IN LOVE. The thing is though that Murphy meets Liam and the pair despite her reservations and wanting to follow the rules; they hit it off. What happens though when this summer Murphy's life starts changing for the better and she has second thoughts about the pact, but of course she doesn't want to disappoint Poppy? Will this Summer be the end of Poppy and Murphy for good or will someone hear their SOS call and save them before the summer is out and show them that life is worth living for ? If you have read Courtney Cole's series NOCTE , then you will feel right at home with SOS by Briana Gaitlin, a book definitely worth reading.
