Lytherus Book Club: SWEET by Emmy Layborne

0

For our June book selection we’re changing things up a bit and are tackling a horror book! SWEET is the new book from Emmy Laybourne, author of the MONUMENT 14 series, and it is seriously creepy. Horror isn’t usually my thing, but I read this book in one sitting, it was so good!

Here’s the official summary:

sweetIn order to launch a new diet sweetener called Solu, the drug’s manufacturers have decided to host a week-long juggernaut on a luxury cruise ship.

Tom and Laurel, two teens who for very different reasons decide not to take Solu, watch as the people around them are overjoyed at first – the product works! They’re losing weight! But the drug is highly addictive, and when the people in charge try to ration out the Solu, Tom and Laurel watch in growing horror as the passengers go from miffed, to mutinous, to murderous.

Will Tom and Laurel make it off the ship alive? And how will they warn the main-land about Solu’s deadly side effects?

We will be dissecting this book into two different posts throughout the month, tackling the first and second halves. We’re also excited to feature an exclusive interview with Emmy at the end of the month, along with a giveaway of SWEET. Stay tuned for more posts, and be sure to read this amazing book along with us!
