Ten: By Gretchen McNeil



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

It was supposed to be the weekend of their lives—three days on Henry Island at an exclusive house party. Best friends Meg and Minnie each have their own reasons for wanting to be there, which involve their school's most eligible bachelor, T. J. Fletcher, and look forward to three glorious days of boys, bonding, and fun-filled luxury.

But what they expect is definitely not what they get, and what starts out as fun turns dark and twisted after the discovery of a DVD with a sinister message: Vengeance is mine.
Suddenly, people are dying, and with a storm raging outside, the teens are cut off from the rest of the world. No electricity, no phones, no internet, and a ferry that isn't scheduled to return for three days. As the deaths become more violent and the teens turn on each other, can Meg find the killer before more people die? Or is the killer closer to her than she could ever imagine?


So I just finished Ten, and I have to say, wow is it gripping.

Fans of horror movies will see a lot of similar themes and scares in Ten, but even so and even knowing where it might go, it was utterly gripping. I honestly couldn’t put it down even though I knew I shouldn’t be reading this at night, (as now I’m scared and have to read something happy and more carefree), but wow if it wasn’t captivating.

Ten is filled with action, death, surprises, and as mentioned before is gripping in a way that will keep readers stuck to their seats until the last page. I’m not a fan of horror movies or books, but I do recommend this for anyone looking for a shocking and captivating book, especially if you’re a fan of the horror movie genre. Perfect for the Halloween season.
