The Only Survivors: A Novel

We rated this book:


Cassidy Bent is one of the nine survivors of a class trip gone wrong. But that count was now down to seven. Clara had died one year after the incident and Ian had died only three months ago. It was time for the group’s yearly stay at The Shallows, a large house that backed up to the beach. Cassidy had deleted all of the contact information in the group. She decided she didn’t want to go on the yearly trip anymore, but when she gets a text showing Ian’s obituary, she knows she needs to show up.

The Only Survivors is the best Megan Miranda book I have read. It’s cast of characters and the way the timeline shifts between present to past kept me engaged and wondering what secrets each character held. Of course, Miranda held on to the very last secret until the end. Before that, it was very easy to shift blame from character to character. What really did happen that awful night ten years ago when their teacher and classmates died in a horrific car crash near the river? This book is like a slow burn that keeps getting better as you read it.
