Week 39 Review: Shift

From Goodreads:
Olive Corbett is not crazy. Not anymore.

She obediently takes her meds and stays under the radar at school. After "the incident," Olive just wants to avoid any more trouble, so she knows the smartest thing is to stay clear of the new girl who is rumored to have quite the creepy past.

But there's no avoiding Miranda Vaile. As mousy Miranda edges her way into the popular group, right up to the side of queen bee Katie – and pushes the others right out – only Olive seems to notice that something strange is going on. Something almost . . . parasitic. Either Olive is losing her grip on reality, or Miranda Vaile is stealing Katie's life.

But who would ever believe crazy Olive, the girl who has a habit of letting her imagination run away with her? And what if Olive is the next target?

My Review:
This was a really fantastic book to read! Because Olive is not someone who's really trusted by the community after the incident. But she is about the only one that sees what's going on. And yeah, that lack of clout really sucks in this situation!

I just really love this cover! The different bits of the face, made of a variety of faces, but all coming together into one face, so awesome! And with it making it look like paper, like from magazines, was really great! Plus it ties into with what was happening in the book so well!

I absolutely loved what Miranda was! With Olive being something of a unreliable person, it made things complicated, because a shapeshifter isn't something that most people believe in! And how it's set up in this world was really awesome!

This book was really creepy, like, to the max, and the ending was just perfect for it, because it was all vague, and it's really easy to question what happened, what to believe, and if it hadn't been written as good as it was, that would've been confusing, but it was well written and so great to read!

Just a really fantastic book, I enjoyed it so much, and I'd love to read more by Em Bailey!
