I've had this book on my kindle for a while but didnt no what to expect, i knew it was up my street so i had to read it!

I really liked the storyline it was like nothing i have read before so i loved the idea, i was laughing so much at the experiemnts they do because it reminded me of my days at uni and the experiments we had to do! I nearly cried at this book and not because it was sad but her nana dies and she has to cook in her nanas house and be in the house without her nana, after i lost my nana i found being in her house hard and cooking things we cooked together really had so i thought that part of the story was sad!  i thought the overall plot was good because you can see that things are happening and unraveling and your just waiting for something to come and get her!

All of the characters in the book are great! Corinne is just a normal teenager that has to come to terms with the fact her life is not going to play out the way she thought it would. Her friend is equally good  and Mason is sweet!

I really  enjoyed the book it was a nice read, good plot, i cant wait to read the next one and see how their lives play out
