SHHHH!
Don't spread the word!
Three-day weekend. Party at White Rock House on Henry Island.
You do NOT want to miss it.

In "Ten" we follow Meg as she arrives on Henry Island for a party thrown by one of the "popular" girls - dragged along by her best friend she expects nothing more than a few days of fun. Instead she ends up on the trail of a killer whilst all around her the body count mounts..

Great fun this one - especially for lovers (as I am) of those classic teen slasher movies such as Friday 13th and Halloween, I spent an entertaining few hours picking my survivors, guessing the identity of the killer and anticipating which of the victims may end up getting the best "death"....come on, we all do it with this sort of story do we not? Fans of scary stories told around the campfire will know exactly where I am coming from...

Told in a snappy engaging style, Meg is an interesting and intelligent character to tag along with as she discovers clues, follows her instincts and tries to hold things together, all the while fighting her ingrained attraction to teen heartthrob TJ who she has rejected on the basis that best friend Minnie is also crazy about him. Friends first, that typical teen girl rule (which often gets thrown out of the window of course) of dating.

Throw in an eclectic mix of typical teens, the usual horror movie rules, some clever little nods to vintage tales of its type (Christie's "And Then There Were None" springs to mind, as does one of my favourite death scenes from the original version of Friday 13th) and you have the perfect recipe for a tasty little treat of a book that has an appeal for young at heart readers everywhere.

Honestly, I didn't like this book all that much. At first glance it looks really good, good cover, good storyline, with only 296 pages maybe not enough to get the full message across being a stand a lone book but you give it the benefit of the doubt anyway, and then you read it. It starts of good, interesting really, even if a few characters are a bit annoying. Then you are just reading it for the sake of finishing. I was left very disappointed by this book wish is sad but I was so looking forward to it. Anyway…. I should review it now.

This books starts of with two best friends Meg & Minnie, on their way to the most prestige party of the year. A weekend party on Henry Island, hosted by the most popular girl in school, someone who was once Minnie’s BFF. Both Minnie and Meg have mixed feelings about going to the party but one things for sure, they are both there for the same reason, T.J. They have both been in love with him for longer than they care to count although Minnie isn't aware of Meg’s feelings, because Meg needs to put her first, why? Minnie is very unstable.

After settling in, strange things start happening once they discover a DVD , a home made one with someone stating they are out for revenge, what for though?. There’s no electricity which means no phones, no internet and worst of all the ferry isn't coming back for two days. That would be a lot to handle, if people weren't dying left right and center. What starts of with a suspected suicide, turns in to a homicide, only Meg is convinced it’s a girl who’s been dead for sometime.

As the plot unfolds, things start to make less sense, when Meg thinks she has it all figured out things do a 180.

Format: Paperback
Ten was disappointing, to say the least. With its intriguing synopsis and glowing reviews, I expected to adore this novel. Not to mention I'm a massive mystery-junkie. But unfortunately, everything fell flat, leaving myself utterly underwhelmed.

A great concept, characters bursting with potential, Ten could have been a spectacular novel. What let the whole book down, though, was the writing. It was achingly simple, as in MG novel simple, with a frustrating lack of description and an unbearable protagonist voice. I was cringing at the repetitive inner dialogue.

Although the writing didn't blow me away, the story line was suspenseful, full of twists. The ending was shocking, and it takes a lot to shock me. I liked the characters and their clashing personalities. The relationship between these characters were brilliantly woven, and very believable.

Overall, I was greatly disappointed by Ten. I must say I was expecting a lot more from Gretchen McNeil. Will I be reading another of her novels? No, probably not.

I bought this book mainly because I love mystery thrillers, and I love Christopher Pike.

Finding his endorsement on the cover of the book pushed me to read it as I own almost 95% of his books and love them all. I love his style of writing, I love his ideas, his plots, his characters, everything! In fact, this book sounded a bit like Pike's Slumber Party, so I was excited to get back to that genre.

This, however, was a major disappointment. You could tell it was a predictable story line from the synopsis, but I was surprised at the bad writing, the weak character development, and the absolute ridiculousness of the whole situation. This book read more like a movie script, one that would probably flop in the box office.

The characters were not introduced properly, it was filled with stereotype, Meg and Minnie (who happen to be best friends for reasons beyond my comprehension) could not stop hating on each other (Minnie out loud, Meg in her mind), there was the boy everyone likes and is fighting over, a bullied student who wants revenge on everyone, 3 chapters into the book people were dying, and it honestly did not look like anyone was phased by all the murders!

I was a little confused by the two men who were on the ferry, I mean they seemed to know that something was going on in the island, and yet they dropped off the girls and left them? Also, since the murders only began that night, why were they apprehensive? They seemed to know something that we didn't at that point, and yet it was never brought up again. And what's worse is that after all the murders were over and there were only 2 survivors left, they seemed just about ready to get on with their lives as if they never witnessed their best friends being brutally murdered.
