Synopsis

When I moved to Hollow Point, Pennsylvania I had a plan. I would do whatever it takes to climb my way to the top of the social ladder, not caring who I had to step on to get there.
The girl who started that rumor about your eating disorder?
That was me.
The girl who made out with your boyfriend?
Me again.
The girl you don’t ever want to cross?
You’re looking at her, bitch.


YaYa's Review

I will try not to bore you with a retelling of the story because the point is for you to read the book, right?

I came across Hollow on FB, and not only did the synopsis drew me in, but the stunning cover. I was a little hesitant to read it knowing they were high school students. I wasn’t planning on getting into the lives of high schoolers and even less the story of some rich, spoiled brat. Yes, she’s a huge brat. But then as I read beyond the first chapter and an hour later, I was still sitting on the couch, I knew I was not going to stop.

As I mentioned before, Riley is rich and spoiled and I guess you can say she has parent issues. Daddy is always working and Mommy is in a program. It’s the number one reason she is acting the way she does and doing what she is doing. It may also be the fact Dad moved them to a new town. She’s a bitch, oh yes she is, and she owns it. Growing up in California surrounded by others who only want to be the best of the best and ruining someone’s image and reputation means nothing to them, Riley has climbed the ladder at being the best at it. Reminds me of Mean Girls except Riley is a one woman crew. One mean girl. It’s not until Daddy Dearest decides moving to a new town to help his image is what’s best, meanwhile Riley is cooking up how to let her claws out and show the people in this new town called Hollow Point who she once was. I love this girl. I shouldn’t but I can’t help it.

Enter Knox. Bad boy, who’s slightly older than her, but not being from the uppity class Riley is from he’s the perfect match for her. Someone needs to keep this girl on her toes. Teach her how Karma works. He’s also Tatum’s “brother.” The one girl in the whole school Riley chooses to be friends with.

So how do these two come together and what do they need from each other? I’m not telling you. Time for you to buy this book.

I don’t normally read YA, but it’s nice to step outside your regular genres and find a book you really enjoyed. Characters, storyline, setting, this book had it all. It was refreshing on my mind and I really connected with the characters. The fact there was no repetitive wordings and the sexy times I find myself skipping made it even better. I don’t need sex in a book. Just give me a great story and this is what Hollow was for me. My one BUT, because yes there is always a BUT for me, I wish there was just a little more of that ending. There’s one part that I personally could’ve used a little more time on. I needed it to be dragged out a bit since it was a big twist in the ending. Maybe a little more emotion. But that’s just me. Looking forward to more from this series.

Happy Readings💋
