Publisher Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From the author of the multimillion-copy bestselling A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder series comes a new blockbuster thriller about a road trip that turns deadly.

Eight hours. Six friends. Five survive.

Red Kenny is on a road trip for spring break with five friends: Her best friend - the older brother - his perfect girlfriend - a secret crush - a classmate - and a killer. 

When their RV breaks down in the middle of nowhere with no cell service, they soon realize this is no accident. They have been trapped by someone out there in the dark, someone who clearly wants one of them dead.

With eight hours until dawn, the six friends must escape, or figure out which of them is the target. But is there a liar among them? Buried secrets will be forced to light and tensions inside the RV will reach deadly levels. Not all of them will survive the night. . . . 

With edge-of-your-seat tension and a gripping mystery, Holly Jackson has written another instant classic!

Loudly Crying Face“Holly Jackson never misses, with the mixed opinions about five survive I was wary about picking up this book I didn’t want it to cloud my view on the second and third AGGGTM books but oh my god did it make my expectations for the future of Holly Jackson’s writing because she is AMAZING this book had be sobbing and didn’t leave my brain for a good 2 weeks after reading. I literally could not pick up another book I was so in love with the story and (MOST OF THE) characters.”

Surprised Face with Open Mouth“Pues me ha gustado más que Asesinato... (otro unpopular opinion). Para mi no ha sido nada predecible, alguna cosa podía olermela pero muy poco y el plot final es 😮. En cuanto a los personajes, me parece que les falta un poco más de construcción, apenas sabes de ellos, porque actúan. En ocasiones creo que el suspense se estanca un poco y se hace pesado, pero luego mejora. El final me ha gustado, aunque necesito saber que ha sido de Red y Arthur. PD: FUCK YOU OLIVER, pesado de mierda.”
Easy to readTwisty
Anxious Face with sweat“La trama era demasiado predecible. Sí que es cierto que el final tiene un pequeño plot twist que salva un poco la historia, pero tiene 3,5⭐️ solo por Arthur y su carta💔. De Oliver mejor no comento nada… 🤬💢”

Expressionless Face“Meh, solo meh. Si no fuera por el final, este libro es un 2⭐ o incluso 1⭐. Personajes malisimos, menos uno y una trama predecible hasta decir hasta. Lo único pues que es muy adictivo pero hasta ahí”

Surprised Face with Open Mouth“me ha gustado bastante, pero me esperaba que fuera menos predecible y que las cosas fueran para otro lado. sin embargo, los personajes me han caído muy bien (excepto Oliver 🤠) y ha sido muy adictivo :)”
