Review of All Eyes on Us

Review (4.5 Stars):  All Eyes on Us had me on the edge of my seat with this smart, sophisticated YA thriller.  Both girls are trying desperately to hold on their public image when an unknown person starts to stalk them and send them disturbing messages.  Together, they must find out the truth and bring this living nightmare to an end.

I really enjoyed All Eyes on Us because I love thrillers and I enjoyed watching these characters grow over the course of this story.  In the beginning, everything was just about status for Amanda and you could see everything change for her after the messages began.  This was a great book and I can’t wait to see what is next for Ms. Frick.
