    2.5 starsToo much It s like the author threw everything but the kitchen sink into this one Despite having some problems with it, I still was interested in the story until the last quarter of the book or so At that point though, it veered so far into ridiculous territory it made me cranky.I had read and enjoyed a book by the author a few years ago and had plans to check out her other books but never got around to it until now When the opportunity to read an advance copy of this one popped up, I jumped on it I found the premise of the book intriguing as it s basically a story about a group of people who were involved in something terrible back when they were teenagers Twenty years later the secret they have kept about what really happened is taking a toll on their lives.The majority of the characters in this book are unlikable people, but that s not really the problem I had with the story The mystery of what happened and what was going to happen in the present time was enough to sustain my interest so it didn t matter much to me I didn t like some of the people I had much of an issue with too many characters being used to advance the plot It led to too many unnecessary side plots I assume the author did this to add depth to the teenage characters, b...

    Sadly this is a DNF for me at 60% Lisa Scottoline has written some of my favorite books, in particular Every Fifteen Minutes was a psychological thriller that I loved Someone Knows has so many dysfunctional characters that it s unbelievable and that s just the teenagers One teen is manic with a destructive, abusive side, another is crushed under the weight of his father s notoriety of being a well known pediatrician in prison for pedophilia, one teen is beginning to question whether he is gay and testing his theory by pretending to care for one of the girls, another is overtly spying on someone he supposedly loves and on and on and on, and these teens aren t even in high school yet, they average 15 years old The characters I could have dealt with if there was a great plot, but sadly I didn t find that to be the case Half way through the book the teens are still sneaking around burying and unburying a gun which never should have been available to them, then bullets and now a blast and a murder So one of the teens is also a murderer, because someone left a bullet in the gun.I ve just come to the conclusion that this book is not for me I had been really looking forward to this book so I m very disappointed but I m sure that it will find it s audience There are many rave reviews for this book so I m an outlier on this one.Since I did not finis...

    I m not going to leave a full review of this book I ve left my thoughts with the publisher There are glowing reviews for this elsewhere and you can read those This is a book about extremely bad, very spoiled rich kids and their egregious parents This is not about a prank gone wrong It is about suicide, murder, extreme mental...

    Wow, that was absolutely excellent I would say it was my favorite of Scottoline s but I ve only read two of her books so I m not sure that statement would be fair Even so, this one was a lot better than After Anna her other book I ve read Our cast of characters include Allie, a fat girl who is struggling to find her place among her peers She is also still reeling from her sister, Jill s, death She is the main character of the novel and she felt so real and dimensional Even though they were her own thoughts, there was a tiny bit of fat shaming Fair warning Julian, is a rich asshole I hated him I m honestly not sure if he was supposed to a protagonist or antagonist I kept waffling between the two I mean he had a lot of creepy scenes like watching his neighbour undress. What the heck but I also pitied him because his dad sucks and his mom is sad and weird David is a gay I think young man, who is friends with Julian no idea why and...

    Lisa Scottoline is one of those authors that I have added her backlist to my endlessly long TBR after really enjoying the few newer titles I ve managed to pick up Seeing her name across the front of Someone Knows was enough to make me want it but looking closer at the cover I couldn t help but think my favorite phrase, popcorn drama and of course with old friends and secrets and lies you get plenty of drama with the suspense.Someone Knows is a story that starts looking back twenty years before joining the characters in the present and is told from multiple points of view throughout As teens twenty years ago Allie and her group of friends were out doing some really stupid and dangerous stuff when they pulled in the new kid and things of course went wrong.Twenty years later the group loses one of it s own and that forces them together again which in turn has them confronting the past Someone has to know how the prank went so horribly wrong and now Allie wants answers to the past that has haunted her for years.This book is one that may have just as many disliking it as there are that do as the charact...

    Someone Knows was good, but not great.There was a lot of unnecessary words and descriptions in the book it probably would have been a good 50 pages shorter if the editor had cut all the needless babble out.I did have a hard tim...

    Unfortunately, this was not my favorite Scottoline book There were too many inconsistencies and the ending felt implausible I ve enjoyed many of her books Hopefully the next one will be better.

    Lisa Scottoline is one of my favorite authors I gave her last book, Feared, a 5 star review So why did I dislike this book so much I guess entitled, privileged teenagers aren t my favorite protagonists, plus a book with no likable characters doesn t usually work for me I don t think I would have even finished this one if I hadn t received an advance review copy in exchange for an honest review But I did finish it, a...
