If we can learn anything from the book-buying behaviors of young adults, it is this: They are, by and large, thrill-seekers. They want dark and dangerous plots, mysterious characters, questionable motives, unreliable narrators, and unexpected surprises of the gasp-worthy variety. They also tend to be partial to a romantic sidebar, and they want to stay fully engaged until the very last page.
Like a diabolical version of The Breakfast Club with equal parts murder and angst, All Your Twisted Secrets is a tense and exhilarating rollercoaster, springing against time to a shocking ending that will make you immediately want to read it again. –Mike Chen, author of Here and Now and Then
These readers are going to love All Your Twisted Secrets. This debut novel by Diana Urban is a psychological thrill ride with all the sweaty-palmed suspense of a real-life escape room experience. The setup: Six teens are locked in a room together with a bomb, a vial of poison, and a note directing them to choose one person to kill within the next 60 minutes—or they'll all die. Everyone has something to hide.
Urban's debut novel has been compared to classic tales by mystery maven Agatha Christie, featuring a modern-day spin. If her first book is any indication, Urban will quickly earn her place among beloved young adult thriller authors like Karen M. McManus.
