Storybook Inc. by Parker Pace
📚 📚 📚 / 5
No sooner is clinically depressed heiress Mica Psmith expelled from the twelfth grade than the principal of her high school offers her a unique proposal. She can graduate on time if she enrolls in a secretive boarding school whose motto—The Program will change your life or your money back—is vaguely chilling.
In spite of reservations (if there’s one thing she doesn’t care for it’s meddling, and Principal Goodman is a meddler), Mica enrolls in the Program, setting into motion a bizarre series of events. Though at first the tricks seem harmless, the events grow increasingly more interconnected and dangerous. Alone except for her traveling companion, Roman, Mica begins to fear for her life.
Terrified of the growing possibility that the Program is little more than a theatrical con game, or worse, of the very real possibility that it is a death plot, Mica and Roman risk everything to uncover the truth. But is Roman really watching out for Mica or is he tied to the criminals tracking her every step?
Thank you to the author, who sent me a copy of ‘Storybook Inc.’ in exchange for an honest review.
I received no compensation for this review.
I was approached by the author with this book. While the cover left me underwhelmed, I was intrigued by the premise and had to pick it up! I expected to pace myself over the weekend with a thrilling but short read, and was left swiping through the pages at such a speed that I couldn’t put it down. This book was the perfect length for my weekend off and the plot was enough to make me feel like I had more than enough pages to get through and keep myself entertained.
It’s no secret that I am a lover of thrillers and psychological books, and this book ticked this box. The ending, although the book was short, was satisfying? Which can be so extremely rare these days because I am often left thinking that the book needed more time to expand the plot, or should have wrapped up earlier. Parker Pace is an extremely talented author who needs to be read more. I also loved Mica and Roman, although I want to spoil it I have to be so very careful not to. So, instead, I encourage you to read about Mica and Roman and The Program and then email me so that I can talk to you about it!
