“This book deals with sensitive subject matter that may be upsetting to some readers.”
I have missed Lily’s writing!! The Five is a book that will suck you in from the beginning. It unravels ever so slowly and I wasn’t sure what to think at first. But as the story unfolds, I came to realize the pacing was necessary to set the stage for what is one of her best twisted stories she has written. I thought that I had the story figured out, but in typical Lily White fashion, I found out I didn’t really know anything. I went back and forth on what to think of the characters. Some were irredeemable, some I was on the fence about. I loved that the story was told the way it was. We get Justin’s perspective on Rainey, and Rainey’s perspective on the events that happened. So we got to understand his confusion, attraction, and empathy. Rainey is a paradox of sin and innocence. Is she a product of her environment, or a cunning young woman who took advantage of certain situations?
As with most Lily White books, to say any more would spoil the book. If you love psychological twists and turns with your romance, then you need this book.
