Publisher's Summary

The facts:

Julian Roman, age 16, is an escapee from a juvenile detention facility.

His parents, Michael Roman and Jennifer Roman, are dead.

Julian is wanted for murder.

The questions:

Why is Julian Roman on the run?

Just how dangerous is he?

And who did kill Michael and Jennifer Roman, if not Julian?

Sixteen-year-old Day Connor views life through the lens of her camera, where perspective is everything. But photographs never tell the whole story. After Day crosses paths with Julian, the world she pictures and the truths she believes - neatly captured in black and white - begins to blur.

Julian is not the "armed and dangerous" escapee the police are searching for, but his alibis don't quite add up, either. There is more to his story. This time, Day is determined to see the entire picture...whatever it reveals. Did he? Or didn't he?

Day digs deeper into the case while Julian remains on the run. But the longer her list of facts becomes, the longer the list of questions becomes, too. It's also getting harder to deny the chemistry she feels for him. Is it real? Or is she being manipulated? Day is close to finding the crack in the case. She just needs time to focus before the shutter snaps shut.

The female narrator is way too much.

The female narrator over acted and was over the top and hard to listen to. The story was almost not enough to keep me going, taking a break from the book, might skip to the end *_*

Very slow and boring

Sorry I wasted 7 ear hours to this. Kept thinking something was going to happen to spice it up. Nothing happened. Glad I didn't have to pay for it!

Simple with no real stimulation.

As far as investigations go for the average teenager, this one does well. The author is capable of drawing in an audience that wants to read the mysterious, but plays it too hard when she does not put the reigns on the raging hormones coming from the protagonist. Even if this was exaggerated a bit to entail that 16 year old teenagers are always horny, the author makes it think that this educated, careful and understanding character is so willing to fall into the arms of this 'gorgeous' boy. The scenario entirely of course is not realistic but it should still have some realistic elements in order to make the novel relatable. Plus the plot was only a little predictable since it was a stretch to believe otherwise when the author was solely focused on the two main characters, rather than a speculative third person party acting as the antagonist. Bravo to the narrators though.

soothing and understanding

The story was good and I enjoyed the voice of the narrator. She was calm and expressive but never annoying. I have listened to over 75 books, but this was my favorite narrator.

Story was great but!

How do you end a book like this, especially when the whole story is being told around to young people. There’s absolutely no closure in this book, but the message was pretty clear in this book though:
don’t judge a book by its cover,
and
look at all the facts before you judge.
This book was geared towards young adults and it was perfectly fitting for those readers, just don’t expect any closure with the main characters of the story

For tweens!

So, the title and the cover threw me off and I thought I was going to be reading a scary mystery type book. It’s not, and you really need to be a kid to enjoy. From a teen outlook it’s not so bad, way better than some YA books I’ve accidentally downloaded. The narration is fine except the horrible voice for the mom, it’s horrid.
