I see you by Clare Mackintosh

Plot summary:
Every morning and evening, Zoe Walker takes the same route to the train station, waits at a certain place on the platform, finds her favorite spot in the car, never suspecting that someone is watching her…
It all starts with a classified ad. During her commute home one night, while glancing through her local paper, Zoe sees her own face staring back at her, a grainy photo along with a phone number and listing for a website called
Other women begin appearing in the same ad, a different one every day, and Zoe realizes they’ve become the victims of increasingly violent crimes—including rape and murder. With the help of a determined cop, she uncovers the ad’s twisted purpose…a discovery that turns her paranoia into full-blown panic. For now Zoe is sure that someone close to her has set her up as the next target. (…)

Este livro surpreendeu-me bastante pela positiva, o plot twist é de nos deixar de boca aberta. Quando ia a meio do livro, pensando eu “já descobri tudo, já sei o fim”, achava que já tinha descoberto o final deste thriller, mas estava muito enganada.

A história começa quando a protagonista Zoe Walker vê a sua foto nos classificados de um jornal e fica determinada a encontrar respostas para a publicação daquela fotografia e… para a publicação de fotografias de outras mulheres. Mas a única resposta que encontra é um web site… e começa a pensar… foi um erro? uma coincidência?

From Where I Watch You by Shannon Grogan

Plot summary:
Sixteen-year-old Kara McKinley is about to realize her dream of becoming a professional baker. Beautifully designed and piped, her cookies are masterpieces, but also her ticket out of rainy Seattle—if she wins the upcoming national baking competition and its scholarship prize to culinary school in California. Kara can no longer stand the home where her family lived, laughed, and ultimately imploded after her mean-spirited big sister Kellen died in a drowning accident. Kara’s dad has since fled, and her mom has turned from a high-powered attorney into a nutty holy-rolling Christian fundamentalist peddling “Soul Soup” in the family café. All Kara has left are memories of better times. (…)

This book was like glue for me, I never was capable of leaving it… the suspense was so incredible…

The book is about a sixteen-year-old girl, Kara, who struggles with her life. She has lost her sister, her father went away to live in another city and she was stalked. She lives with her mom and wants to be a professional baker, but has a long way to go…
