Love Lies Beneath by Ellen Hopkins

This was an interesting book. I can’t say for sure whether I actually liked it or not. I wasn’t obsessed with the storyline like I wanted to be. I thought it was going to be a very different story based on the description on the back than the one I actually read. This story did keep me on my toes. I did not see the ending coming, which is a first, but I still wasn’t satisfied with it. That being said, I have no desire to find out what is actually going on if there ever is a sequel. I just… didn’t care.
I didn’t really understand what the point of the book was. It wasn’t really a mystery, but it wasn’t fully a love story either.
Have you read this book? Or Ellen Hopkins in general? I would love to hear your thoughts on this book. From what I gather online, a lot of her fans were disappointed in this book like I was. But I have to give her props for the ending of the book. I didn’t see that coming and it left me confused.
Right now the book is on sale at for $10.40. I think this would be a good book for anyone who doesn’t read a lot. I feel like you can read this for 15 minutes and put it down for a week or two and not have to backtrack.
