Eighteen-year-old Emily Heath would love to leave her dead-end town, known locally as "The Sham", with her boyfriend, Jack, but he's very, very sick; his body is failing and his brain is shutting down. He's also in hiding, under suspicion of murder. Six months' ago, strange signs were painted across town in a dialect no one has spoken for decades and one of Emily's classmates washed up in the local floods.



Emily has never trusted her instincts and now they're pulling her towards Jack, who the police think is a sham himself, someone else entirely. As the town wakes to discover new signs plastered across its walls, Emily must decide who and what she trusts, and fast: local vigilantes are hunting Jack; the floods, the police, and her parents are blocking her path; and the town doesn't need another dead body.

Meine Meinung/ Fazit:Den Roman "The Sham" von Ellen Allen erhielt ich durch booklikes als ein Rezensionsexemplar.Die Autorin weist am Anfang schon darauf hin, dass das Buch nichts für jüngere ist, da es viele Gewalt Szenen und obszöne Worte enthält.Was sich auch gleich zu Beginn zeigt das die Autori...

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thanks Ellen. I do have to agree that the first chapter was a little squeamish, but it was told in an effort to show just what bullies these girls were. However, to me the story went away from the girls and concentrated...

4.0 a roller coaster ride that will leave you breathless until the end
I received a review copy of this book for my stop on the blog tour at Donnie Darko Girl. The Sham will pull you in and won't let go until the very end. A tautly written mystery thriller, this novel kept me guessing until I didn't know which way was up and which was down. I wanted to know who Jack re...
