The Things We Do to Our Friends

She’s an outsider desperate to belong, but the cost of entry might be her darkest secret in this intoxicating debut of literary suspense following a clique of dangerously ambitious students at the University of Edinburgh.

Edinburgh is a moody type of city. A lot of fog and atmosphere, history, and perfect for someone trying not to be noticed.

Clare arrives alone. She has secrets. Dark ones. She is sharing a flat with two girls she doesn’t speak to and keeping herself to herself.

There is a group of girls she is watching. They are a tight circle it seems. And the leader is clearly Tabitha. Tabitha is gorgeous and obviously rich. People are just drawn to her. And she is a psycho! But being befriended by this group is what Clare wants. Until she doesn’t.

When Tabitha reveals a project they have been working on Clare is certain Tabitha knows about her past. And then things get weird.

This one went so slowly I thought I was almost finished but was only a quarter of the way in. It left me with a lot of questions. Would someone just blithely go along with something so immoral? Why? The price for being accepted may be too high.
