I should have a disclaimer before this review that I love Sarah Pinborough. Behind Her Eyes has become my go-to recommendation and she could probably write complete trash but I’d still read it, I loved BHE that much. That being said, 13 Minutes is not trash and I was thrilled to death when Flatiron Books sent me this copy for review.
Natasha is the most popular girl in her school and is undoubtedly the most simultaneously loved and hated. When she is pulled from an icy river near her home and found to have been dead for approximately 13 minutes it has everyone talking. Once she regains consciousness she tries but cannot remember how she ended up in the river but immediately starts to second guess her friends closest to her. With the help of her ex-best friend Becca, she tries to solve her own mystery of how and why this happened to her.
13 Minutes is 412 pages long and took me 2 days to read.
I give this book a 4 out of 5 for its hugely dramatic twists and turns throughout the story. I really enjoyed reading this and flew through it because I just had to know how it ended!! I highly recommend this book, especially if you love some good girl drama!
Here’s to the adventure of finding a novel novel!
