Book Review - Sanctuary Bay by Laura J. Burns

Photo Source - Amazon

Sarah Merson lost both of her parents at a very young age. She is shuttled from one foster home to another. However, she receives the opportunity of a lifetime when she receives a full scholarship to attend the most elite prep school in the country.  Excited to have a better chance at life, Sarah is ecstatic but she isn't able to shake away the feeling that not everything is what it seems.  When one of her roommate goes missing, Sarah must find her roommate before it is too late. Will Sarah be able to find her friend before it's too late? Is there something sinister hiding behind Sanctuary Bay's promising reputation? 

The book is an interesting read but a bit cliche. Sarah has the ability to remember everything she has experienced which would have lead readers to assume it's a book about super powers. However, this is not the case, its more about a secret corporation performing very illegal operations. Many parts of the story were uninteresting and boring. I also had a hard time liking the main character at times. She was very annoying, self absorbed and woe is me! How can you want a better life but keep telling other characters they had it better than she did and they should be grateful. The book was an okay read but needs a bit of polish and excitement for the next novel.
