Book Review:

A Frayed Web is about a teenager, Walter Bohanna, whose mother is about to get married to her high school sweetheart. Adam Kingsley, Walter's future stepfather, doesn't seem to be who he portrays himself as. Walter is determined to show Adam's true colors even if that means unraveling secrets that shouldn't be discovered.

A Frayed Web is amazing! I can't believe how much Mr. Ripslinger's writing intrigues me. Page after page, I couldn't wait to find out the ending! The story itself is so awesome, you could feel how Walter felt.

A Frayed Web's pace was perfect. I would even say that it's on the fast pace side. I enjoyed each character's personality and their flaws. Walter is beautifully written, his point of view is strong and I never got confused.

I would give A Frayed Web five stars! I also would recommend it to anyone wanting a quick read with a thrilling twist.
