Jess is a 17-year-old girl whose mother had been the first victim of the Magpie Man, an infamous serial killer. She decides to participate in a YouTube reality TV show to use her platform and try to catch the Magpie Man. In order to gain a contract with the show, she has to compete with four other teens to see who could gain the most attention. Will Jess be able to outshine her four competitors? Will she be able to catch the Magpie Man? Read more to find out!

This book is a mixture of realistic and unrealistic themes. The use of social media and having a show on YouTube seems realistic, but, trying to catch a serial killer doesn’t seem very realistic to me. I also don’t like how her actions weren’t planned out; they seemed rather careless to me.  This is a fast-paced book, making it a quick read.  Jessica goes through a journey of acceptance and closure throughout the story. The cover seems kind of bland, but, I did like how there were 14 roses, one for each victim of the Magpie Man. If you like reality shows, murder mysteries, or fiction, this book would be a good fit for you.
