Quickie Review: The Sound by Sarah Alderson

The Sound by Sarah Alderson was released May 13, 2014 by Simon Pulse. It's a YA romantic suspense title.

Ren, a seventeen year old British citizen, takes a job on Nantucket as a nanny for the summer and gets way more than she bargained for. In her free time she ends up associating with snarky, preppy kids and a moody, intense yet sweet, bad boy. Meanwhile, someone is sexually assaulting young teens on the island and someone else is killing foreign nannies.

The book moves along quickly. The two strongest characters are Jesse, the bad boy, and Ren, the nanny. The others aren't as heavily characterized. There is a love triangle of sorts through most of the book. I got so caught up in the story that I read it all in one day. I gave the book 4 stars.
