The Hartes and the Golds have lived next door to each other for eighteen years. They have shared everything from family picnics to chicken pox – so it’s no surprise that in high school Chris and Emily’s friendship blossoms into something more. When the midnight calls come in from the hospital, no one is prepared: Emily is dead at seventeen from a gunshot wound to the head, inflicted by Chris as part of an apparent suicide pact. He tells the police the next bullet was meant for himself.
Januarys Book Club, Versions of Us by Laura Barnett – We decided not to write a lengthy review Versions of Us by Laura Barnett. Dee didn’t manage to finish the book. I did. But I didn’t enjoy it at all. Complex, flitty and I wasn’t invested in any characters.
Join us in reading The Pact and let us know your thoughts on the novel. We would love to hear from you. But don’t give away any plot twists! Thanks for reading. Katie x
