Review: Bonfire - Krysten Ritter


Review: Bonfire - Krysten Ritter - November 2017
I have been wanting to read this book ever since I saw that it was being released as I enjoyed Krysten Ritter as an actress with her first starring as Gia in Veronica Mars and then later as Jessica Jones.  Bonfire is a New Adult/ Adult crossover mystery with an environmental law feeling to it. When Abby Williams was in high school, the popular girls fell ill, and some said it was a hoax but Abby thought otherwise. Then after graduation, Kaycee - one of the girls, the Queen Bee disappeared, and no-one heard from her ever again. Abby also left town and vowed never to come back. Except here she is ten years later and making her way back to Barren as she is now an Environmental Lawyer and a complaint has been put in about Optimal and how they are poisoning the town's water and making people sick. It is Abby's job to prove that it is making people sick but of course with small towns comes secrets and scandals . Abby will soon discover that things have not changed but gotten worst especially when it comes to the deadly game aka The Games played in High School with Blackmail . During her time here , she will also discover the truth about what happened to Kaycee and uncover a conspiracy that the folks of Barren have been hiding and playing for the last ten years.  Some parts of this book were slow and others captured your attention. Overall though it definitely felt an almost sick novel as I couldn't believe how many people were involved and trying to cover up corruption . You couldn't know who to trust in Bonfire as everyone seemed out to get everyone. Truly felt like a psychotic community, I'm so glad Abby managed to escape as who knows where she might have ended up.
