Blurb

After surviving an infamous family tragedy, sixteen-year-old Kennedy Jones has made it her mission to keep her brother’s search through the cosmos alive. But then something disturbs the frequency on his radio telescope–a pattern registering where no signal should transmit.

In a neighboring county, seventeen-year-old Nolan Chandler is determined to find out what really happened to his brother, who disappeared the day after Nolan had an eerie premonition. There hasn’t been a single lead for two years, until Nolan picks up an odd signal–a pattern coming from his brother’s bedroom.

Drawn together by these strange signals–and their family tragedies–Kennedy and Nolan search for the origin of the mysterious frequency. But the more they uncover, the more they believe that everything’s connected–even their pasts–as it appears the signal is meant for them alone, sharing a message that only they can understand. Is something coming for them? Or is the frequency warning them about something that’s already here? 

Review

It was a scary, thrilling, nail-bitingly anticipating experience. A crazy roller coaster ride. It also had bits of family emotions, friendship blossoming, new love. An unusual combo.

I loved Kennedy as a character. She is headstrong, stubborn, no-nonsense kind of a person along with being emotional. I love bossy women characters, characters with substance.

I was getting The Last Time I Lied  (by Riley Sager) vibes. So I was trying to foresee the climax and ending. The climax turned out to be very loosely similar, and very unprecedented (thank God!)

The pace is so brisk, the 300-odd pages can be finished in a day, if you do not have any unavoidable circumstances like I had (day job, *sob*).

Rating: 4.5/5

Character Development: 8/10

Plot: 8/10

Quality of writing: 8/10

Pace: 9/10

Thought provoking: 9/10

Entertaining: 9/10

Enjoyable: 9/10

P.S. I had received this e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Netgalley and Penguin Random House
