Book review: Friend Request by Laura Marshall

With a line like ‘Maria Weston wants to be friends. But Maria Weston has been dead for more than twenty-five years’. You can’t help but feel a prick on the hairs on the back of your neck.

This book is totally addictive. You will struggle to put it down, if you’re anything like me. It will keep you on the edge of your seat as you think you’ve worked it out. But have you?

Louise Williams has tried to put the past behind her. She now lives in suburbia in¬†South-East London. Yet a Facebook post reminds her of something she had hoped she had left behind. A post pings: The¬†Sharne Bay High Renunion, Class of 1989. A Post which fills her with dread at the prospect of the school reunion and reliving the experiences she has left behind. High school was not a happy time for Louse. She was always the outcast trying desperately to do anything she could to fit in the popular crown, headed up by an ultra popular girl, Sophie. Louise takes the plunge and adds her on Facebook. It can’t be that bad meeting again, can it?

The book for me has the added touch as it is full of nostalgia being brought up in that era, but trust me you will be gripped whatever your experience.

Loved it. 10/10
