About this deal

If they really were just trying to help with the murder investigation, they’d do so plainly, as without releasing other unrelated to the case secrets that can ruin their lives.

And, by the laws of narrative tension, you know that each secret will get bigger (and affect the MC more) as you go through, which helps to keep the pacing up and you reading onwards. I was a freshman in high school eight years ago (holy shiz 😬), but there are things that I remember like it was yesterday.That being said, there are common Asian stereotypes perpetuated in the novel – but I personally didn’t think too much of it since I assumed it was commentary. This juicy thriller is steeped in secrets, betrayal, and toxic competitiveness--you won't be able to put it down. Secrets shared on Tip Tap have real consequences, including ostracizing, suspensions, or even loss of scholarships. As much as it would’ve been interesting to see the story from Krystal, Akil and Alexander as well, I don’t think I would’ve enjoyed the story as I would’ve with just Nancy’s perspective. When Jamie doesn't show up for Honors night, Nancy thinks it's her chance to step into the spotlight and finally claim her spot at the top.

How We Fall Apart moves fast (and it gets dark fast); it’s very much action and plot-oriented, with the engaging writing and humor I’m familiar with from Zhao’s previous novels.While having a promising concept, this release fails to capture the rush of a thriller nor the essence of dark academia. I liked that it was about that secret, but I think someone else being the person behind it wouldn’t have stretched my believability so much.
