“Quinn looked to the horizon as the cornstalks swayed with the breeze. The corn itself could have been waving hello, or it could have been breathing.”
Quinn Maybrook and her father have moved to a tiny, boring Kettle Springs, to find a fresh start. But what they don’t know is that ever since the Baypen Corn Syrup Factory shut down, Kettle Springs has cracked in half.
On one side are the adults, who are desperate to make Kettle Springs great again, and on the other are the kids, who want to have fun, make prank videos, and get out of Kettle Springs as quick as they can.
Kettle Springs is caught in a battle between old and new, tradition and progress. It’s a fight that looks like it will destroy the town. Until Frendo, the Baypen mascot, a creepy clown in a pork-pie hat, goes homicidal and decides that the only way for Kettle Springs to grow back is to cull the rotten crop of kids who live there now.
Wanna read a slasher book? this is it.
Okay this book got me going in a “omg no way lol” It did feel pretty cliche with small town teens who are just bored and find entertainment with pranks for their vlog.
The plot of course was just insane. I wouldn’t want to ruin the book for anyone but yeah I didn’t see that coming. Some scenes were predictable and some were pretty descriptive with the blood and such. Heads up if you’re not okay with gory stuff.
This was a fast pace novel for me in my opinion and It felt like I didn’t get much of the personality of Quinn. There’s no complaint nor dislike of her. She seemed alright. It was a pretty entertaining book and I would give it 4 out of 5 stars.
