Book Review - The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma


Violet is an eighteen year old ballerina that days away from attending Julliard, her dream school. She is worried that something might expose the truth behind her achievement. In the inside of a girls' juvenile detention  center, is Amber, who has been locked up for as long as she can remember.  Tying these two girls together is Orianna who knows Violet's dark secret.

I thought this was going to be an interesting read but, it was such a long and boring read. There were pages upon pages were nothing happened but, they same repetitive and asinine things. I didn't really care for the author's writing style as I felt I had to constantly reread things to understand what she was trying to say. This novel was billed as a horror story but, unless you include the ending which was confusing in it's own right, there was nothing scary or thrilling about this book. There was no guessing who was behind the murders because it was obvious. The characters were all duds and most of the time I was wondering what the point was of some of these characters.
