Going Under by S.Walden


5 stars


My Review:

I would like to start off my saying that the letter included at the end of the story from the author made all the difference to me. In topics like this people can be very judgmental and I lived that clarification she provided for the readers. She was very knowledgable and this story was a tough subject on its own let alone as a book. Going under was very well written and had a gripping story. This book was a far different read that I thought it was going to be. It had all the great making of a story but I just wasn't sure till I began it. It was great and I thought the ending was perfect. The story had its mystery and it had its love story. I think that author did an amazing job with the characters and building their relationships. It definitely had some serious ones. Brooke was very Veronica Mars (maybe not as smart in some situations) :) I especially loved her reference in the book. <3 I thought the ending was a perfect way to wrap up the story. The author ensured that no ends were left danging. Your questions were answered and their was closure. I was VERY grateful for this. I will admit some points int he book bothered me, mostly concerning Terry and Ryan , but all in all the book was great. We all are entitled to our character's action judgments lol. But the ending cleared a lot up for me and I appreciated that. Its a great read. A very sensitive subject handled beautifully. Definitely a must read.


Brooke Wright has only two goals her senior year at Charity Run High School: stay out of trouble and learn to forgive herself for the past. Forgiveness proves elusive, and trouble finds her anyway when she discovers a secret club at school connected to the death of her best friend. She learns that swim team members participate in a “Fantasy Slut League,” scoring points for their sexual acts with unsuspecting girls. Brooke, wracked with guilt over her friend’s death, decides to infiltrate the league by becoming one of the “unsuspecting girls,” and exact revenge on the boys who stole away her best friend. An unexpected romance complicates her plans, and her dogged pursuit of justice turns her reckless as she underestimates just how far the boys will go to keep their sex club a secret.
