Accomplice by Eireann Corrigan


They’ve gotten good grades—but that’s not good enough. They’ve spent hours on community service—but that’s not good enough. Finn and Chloe’s advisor says that colleges have enough kids with good grades and perfect attendance, so Chloe decides they’ll have to attract attention another way. She an Finn will stage Chloe’s disappearance, and them when CNN is on their doorstep and the nation is riveted, Finn will find and save her. Is seems like the perfect plan—until things start to go wrong. Very wrong.

I was supposed to be a victimless crime. Finn was supposed to be the good accomplice, and Chloe was supposed to be the hidden object of attention. But when things intensify, situations become more and more extreme . . . and what once seemed victimless isn’t so innocent anymore.

Ok this is going to be a short review because, well, I didn’t like it. I’ll start from the beginning. I got this book because it sounded like a good mystery, and, too be honest, the cover looked pretty cool. It looks like that saying about not judging a book by its cover is correct because it turned out to be nothing like I thought it would be. Finn and Chloe irritate me to death. Chloe is sick thinking about this whole scheme, and stupid when it comes to thinking something through and doing the right thing. Finn is the brainless friend that goes along with Chloe no matter what. She takes the "if-you-were-told-to-jump-off-a-bridge-would-you-do-it" to a whole new leave. I couldn’t stand them. The thought that pretending to disappear is too weird. And on the other hand, the story became boring after a while. I got sick of it after about 90 pages into the book. I didn’t like the sequence of how things worked either I got confused at times. In the end, I never finished the whole book. So from 1 to 10 I am giving it a 1. Sorry, but that’s it.
