Book Review: The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die

The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die
by April Henry
Henry Holt and Co.

She doesn’t know who she is. She doesn’t know why they’re after her. All she knows is that she has two choices: run or die.

On the run from two mysterious men who are trying to kill her, she’s armed with a stolen gun, $2.50 in change, and a fast-food worker named Ty. They have to figure out who she is and why someone is after her—and quickly. Whoever they are, they’re catching up.

April Henry’s latest YA thriller is intense from page one! The minute the protagonist wakes up with no memory of who she is, she’s in for a fight. We follow her from a cabin in the woods to the streets of Washington as she searches for help, unsure of who to trust.

I absolutely couldn’t put this book down! I had to find out who the girl is and why people want her dead. And you wouldn’t believe the ending! Older Jack and Jill readers will find themselves unable to put down this book until they reach the stunning conclusion.

The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die by April Henry is available now from Henry Holt and Co.
