13 Minutes by Sarah Pinborough

13 Minutes- review from Michelle McRae on Vimeo.

’13 Minutes’ is ‘Gone Girl’ for YAs. It’s a dark psychological thriller with mean girls and teenagers who don’t know who they are and some who know too clearly who they are. Natasha is pulled from an icy river and revived after having no heartbeat for 13 minutes. She can’t remember how she ended up in the river. 13 minutes is the story of what happened to her and the repercussions of that action. It’s a page turner with one hundred too many pages.
