As We Lie Dying Review

Title: As We Lie Dying

Author: Jess Watkins

Pages: 9

Rating: 4/5

Great Halloween story though I wish it had been longer, and ended in a different way. Sadly it didn't so I'm left longing for another book to finish it off. I've written the author and she says this is just a short story and she's not going to write any more on it. So sad!
Madison is just a girl who wants her friend Hannah to stop seeing a troublemaker named Adam. Unfortunately she doesn't want to so Madison gives up. That doesn't stop Rob (Adam's friend) from getting Madison to go out with him.
She has a great time and agrees to go to the Halloween party with all of them though she still has reservations about Adam. When she and her friend get there they find no one.
Madison is pulled into a room by Rob but instead of looking happy to see her he tries to get her to jump out the window and run. By that time it's too late because Madison hears a scream. Her friend's scream. Adam comes in but even though Rob tries to stop him and she tries to run Adam is too fast for her.
So she finds her friend and herself lying on the floor with Adam holding a knife. He stabs Hannah but he still needs Madison to die.
Will he kill her? Why does he need her dead? Will Rob get there in time?
Seriously this needs to be made into a series! Once I get a Nook or a Kindle (which do you all suggest?) I am definitely downloading this...despite the ending. This book comes out on the 24th of October (I think) so look for it when it comes out! :D Hope I didn't give away too much!
