by Gretchen McNeil

This book is about ten teens are invited to Henry Island vacation home for a three-day party. The popular girl in school invites a mix of teenagers to her little party. Little did they know, of the consequences of their past. Meg and her friend Minnie are the main highlights of the story. The very night they are at the house, one of the boys, Ben, almost dies of allergies. Someone sprinkled nuts on his salad, and he was soon suffocating. Meg helps him get back to normal, but little do they know, what comes next. Confusion with a CD, red paint smeared on the wall, one by one, the teens begin to die in a specific, and orderly(With the help of a creepy diary from a dead girl.). . .

Gretchen McNeil's Ten is a gripping tale that is somewhat related to Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None, except teen version. Despite the lack of proper language, this story is sure to keep you at the edge of your seat from chapter one, to the end. Once you find out who the killer is, and his/her purpose, you are sure to unconsciously look at your 6 and 12, after anticipating this terrifying tale.

I would personally recommend this book to those who yearn for a great thriller, and those who understand the troubled teenager's problems: boy confusion, who-dates-who, the terrible I-Think-Your-My-Boyfriend-Even-Though-In-Reality-Your-Not, and the typical triangle of love. This book has some bad words just to let you know. Read this if you have a chance, and tell me what you think!
