Surface Tension by Mike Mullin #bookreview #YA #thriller #TuesdayBookBlog

After witnessing an act of domestic terrorism while training on his bike, Jake is found near death, with a serious head injury and unable to remember the plane crash or the aftermath that landed him in the hospital.

A terrorist leader’s teenage daughter, Betsy, is sent to kill Jake and eliminate him as a possible witness. When Jake’s mother blames his head injury for his tales of attempted murder, he has to rely on his girlfriend, Laurissa, to help him escape the killers and the law enforcement agents convinced that Jake himself had a role in the crash. –

Trust me when I say this – don’t blink or you’ll miss some things while reading this book.  It moves that fast.  Surface Tension is a thrilling ride with a chilling premise – it could potentially happen.

Because Jake happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and witnesses something he shouldn’t, his whole life, and the lives of his loved ones, change in an instant.  He finds himself in dire, nearly impossible situations, many of them life-threatening, but trust me, this kid is smart and resilient.  And his girlfriend, Laurissa, is brave, tenacious, and someone you want on your side.  She’s definitely a keeper.

Told from a dual POV (Jake and Betsy), this book deals with real world issues of terrorism and hate groups and, along with Jake, the reader will question who’s trustworthy.  An action-packed, twisty thriller, this is easily a crossover novel I’d recommend to both YA and adult readers.  This book is scheduled for publication May 8th, 2018.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the digital ARC.
