All my secrets by Sophie McKenzie

The shocking reality behind a GBP10 million inheritance turns Evie Brown's world on its head. Unable to find out the truth from her parents, Evie ends up on the mysterious island of Lightsea, where her desire for answers leads her towards a series of revelations that threaten everything she holds dear ...including her life.

My thoughts
It's ok. As expected it is tightly plotted and fast paced meaning I read it very fast as I needed to know what happened next.

I disliked how the main character treated her parents as soon as she found out a "shocking" truth. The reaction was pantomime OTT.

I also disliked the insta love triangle. Ffs this girl has found out massive things about herself and just needs to get her own shit together but of course she has time to forge a new relationship with a boy she has just met (0 to snogging in 10 seconds flat) and then discover a second boy who she has the 'chemistry' with 2 mins later. The story wouldn't have lacked anything without the kissing and actually detracted from the story for me. Maybe I'm just becoming old and grumpy.
