Family can be a real killer. DAMAGE DONE is a gripping YA debut about a girl trying to escape the past. In this deliciously disturbing, heart-in-your-throat psychological thriller, the truth hurts. Before the incident, Julia Vann had a twin brother. After, she has a new identity in a new town and a memory of that terrible day that refuses to come into focus. Now that she’s Lucy Black, she’s able to start again. And she’s stumbled onto the radar of one of the hottest guys in school, a boy who will do anything to protect her. Lucy’s even getting used to the empty bedroom where her brother should be. But when someone from her past starts asking questions and threatening to tell all, she’s forced to confront the terrors—and the dark secrets—she thought were safely left behind. One thing is clear: The damage done can never be erased. It’s only just beginning. . . .

I like to think I’m fairly observant. (I have to be for my job).
A pretty good judge of character. (Except with Hans from Frozen. Wasn’t expecting that).
I can usually spot plot twists coming. (GONE GIRL).

However, this book caught me off guard.

I was NOT expecting anything that happened in that last half of the book. (Which I devoured, by the way).

And it frustrated and excited the hell out of me.

Julia Vann has changed her name and switched schools.

Now, Lucy Black leads a seemingly normal life. No one should expect that her brother was the sociopath behind a horrific school shooting a year earlier.

The only thing I did pick up on was the fact that she was hiding something. Something seemed off, but I couldn’t put my finger on it.

But it was all there. I could have picked up on every clue if I had suspected something was really off. Reread my steps and solved the mystery.

I don’t want to give too much away, so I will just say the following:

Two people, one for sure, could be every person in House Lannister. A Lannister who always repays her debts.

Damage Done is a dark and well written book. If you like to be stumped and shocked, it’s a consuming read.
Good Points
Well written.
Fast paced.
Thriller.
