This book is full of mysteries and plot twists. I enjoyed how the story revolved around main characters that live differently than the rest of society. I liked how the characters all had flaws and they were original. The clues set throughout the book force you question characters and the town as you start to piece together the picture. I liked how there were many plot twists and layers set in the book. I enjoyed how the cover shows details that are relevant to the book, such as the van, and Phoenix. I also like how the title connects to the story, because that is what Phoenix feels. Overall, this is a good book and I recommend it to those who enjoy reading mystery, revenge, and thriller books.
