This is what I like about Kara Thomas‘s books. They’re just so easy to read, I could fly through the pages in just a matter of a few hours. It’s like she purposely makes all her characters just a little bit flawed so you wouldn’t want to fully trust them or feel particularly close to them. Instead, she pulls your attention toward the basic mystery of the missing girl.
Little Monsters therefore is your standard whodunnit thriller, it’s intriguing and engaging, without having to dispense much emotions for the characters. That’s what I call easy reading and boy, do we need plenty of those.
So even though most of the author’s books are just a three and a half star read for me, just like this one, because the revelations and ending are quite underwhelming, she would definitely remain my go-to author for quick YA thrillers.
