REVIEW: The Project by Courtney Summers


 Courtney Summers tried to kill me again, with this novel, and yet I somehow made it out alive...can I say that for all of the characters? Read it to find out.

I should know by now that she’s going to write a novel that has me fully invested in the characters and their plight and somehow I always forget that her novel is going to take over my entire life until I can get to THE END and then have imaginary commentary in which I ask Courtney Summers all the questions and get to the bottom of it all.

Since there will be no Courtney Summers conversation, I shall drink and call it a night. 

EDITED TO ADD: 2 months later and I still think of the plot and characters in this novel. Courtney Summers really just has a way of creating that burrows right into me. 

SYNOPSIS: From Courtney Summers, the New York Times bestselling author of the 2019 Edgar Award Winner and breakout hit Sadie, comes her electrifying follow-up―a suspenseful, pulls-no-punches story about an aspiring young journalist determined to save her sister no matter the cost.

Lo Denham is used to being on her own. After her parents died in a tragic car accident, her sister Bea joined the elusive community called The Unity Project, leaving Lo to fend for herself. Desperate not to lose the only family she has left, Lo has spent the last six years trying to reconnect with Bea, only to be met with radio silence.

When Lo’s given the perfect opportunity to gain access to Bea’s reclusive life, she thinks they’re finally going to be reunited. But it’s difficult to find someone who doesn’t want to be found, and as Lo delves deeper into The Project and its charismatic leader, she begins to realize that there’s more at risk than just her relationship with Bea: her very life might be in danger.

As she uncovers more questions than answers at each turn, everything Lo thought she knew about herself, her sister, and the world is upended. One thing doesn’t change, though, and that’s what keeps her going: Bea needs her, and Lo will do anything to save her.
