In Twist, Roni Teson has crafted a suspenseful tale of love, betrayal and intrigue with a cast of characters who will leap off the pages and stay in your heart long after the last page has been turned.
This has been the worst year of Beatrice Malcolm’s life. Her dad, a government agent, now finds himself on the FBI’s most wanted list and her mother has died from a horrible disease. So she’s gone to live with her aunt Charlotte and Uncle George. But then not only does Bea get caught making out with a boy in the back of a car, and it’s caught on film and finds its way onto social media.
Too bad that wasn’t the worst of it. The FBI tells her one thing and her dad tells her another. She has to make a choice to believe one or the other. And her life depends on it.
Twist was a very twisted tale reality and unreality. It was a mesmerizing story that had you unsure who to believe. The characters were well-developed. I was invested in the main character Bea and I really felt for her and the terrible situation she was in. I rejoiced with her when she received the good news she wasn’t expecting and surprised when I found out it wasn’t true. I can’t imagine how devastated she must have been.
While Twist is written with young adults in mind, I think the sexual content of the book is quite adult-oriented, so readers should keep that in mind if they are choosing this book as a gift for someone else. There is also some profanity in this book that readers looking for clean reads should be aware of.
Twist is a book that you can read more than once so that you can catch all the details that you missed the first time. It is a great read that leaves you with much to think about at the end. I think the best twist of the book is the twist the author leaves you with at the end of the novel.
I gave Twist 4 stars out of 5. It was a brilliant suspense novel that readers of suspense of any age will surely enjoy.
Thank you to the publishers who provided a copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review. A positive opinion was not required. All thoughts are my own.
About the Author:
Growing up in Southern California, I developed a love for the ocean and all things coastal. I lived inland for a few years in Atlanta, Phoenix, and Denver, only to be lured home by the sound of crashing waves and colorful sunsets.
I wrote Heaven or Hell, my first novel, during my treatment for stage IV cancer. The day after the final edit of this book, the doctor told me that I was in remission. I believe writing was a critical part of my recovery, and now it's integral to my life.
I'm lucky. I have a passion that keeps me awake at night, friends who have been in my life for decades, family that supports my craziness, a home on the beach, many more novels in my head, and a body that is healed. I am forever grateful.
