Beautiful Malice by Rebecca James

I have just finished Beautiful Malice (Rebecca James). This book captured the media’s attention after it sparked an international bidding war for its publishing rights. This book is targeted at the young adult/ adult cross over market (think twilight) and possibly for this reason I found it really easy to read.
This gripping psychological thrill is James’s debut novel and examines grief, friendship and love with some interesting twists. It follows Katherine Patterson, a 16 years old girl who is trying to escape the  realities of her sisters murder by moving cities and changing her name. Katherine, to her surprise, quickly becomes close friends with Alice, who has other motives for their relationship apart from friendship.
I flew through this novel, and enjoyed the simplicity of the writing. I would recommend this to anyone wanting an easy to read but gripping thriller.
