Link to Goodreads:
A streetwise girl trains to take on a gang of drug dealers and avenge her best friend’s death in this thriller for fans of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’s Lisbeth Salander.
People say when you take Heam, your body momentarily dies and you catch a glimpse of heaven. Faye was only eleven when dealers forced Heam on her and her best friend, Christian. But Faye didn’t glimpse heaven—she saw hell. And Christian died.
Now Faye spends her days hiding her secret from the kids at school, and her nights training to take revenge on the men who destroyed her life and murdered her best friend. But life never goes according to plan. When a mysterious young man named Chael appears, Faye’s life suddenly gets a lot more complicated. Love and death. Will Faye overcome her desires or will revenge consume her?
Why I’m Excited:
It’s hard not to get excited for a heroine who is compared to Lisbeth Salander, and the whole training-at-night thing kind of reminds me of Hit Girl. Plus, I also love a good revenge story. This book sounds really intriguing (although who isn’t weary when the read the words “mysterious young man”?). I’m definitely keeping my eye for this one.
