Book Review: Uncover

Title: Uncover

Author: Amanda Linehan

Narrator: Nicole Blessing




What she went looking for isn’t what she found….

Marissa wants to put this all behind her. Her best friend, Olivia, has been killed in a car accident, and her death has left more questions than answers for those who knew her best.

When Olivia’s younger sister mentions a lost object that could bring some closure, Marissa reluctantly agrees to help search for it, not sure that she wants the answers she might find.

Along with a group of those closest to Olivia, she sets out to seek the truth, only to find herself trapped in the dark, making all the wrong moves. In order to reclaim her freedom, she must find a way out of the darkness.

Something she’s not sure she can do.



My Review

4/5 Stars

Uncover is about a story of a group of high schoolers dealing with the aftermath of the death of one of their classmates, Olivia. Each of them reflects on life, and handle Olivia’s death differently. When one of them suspects it could be murder, the group searches for Olivia’s journal to potentially help explain her death. They go at night, not telling anyone where they went, and that was how they got lost in the woods.

Short but intense. This book I felt focused more on the characters than any sort of plot. It explores death and our own mortality, also the way that we can make the most of our relationships with those around us. The characters were interesting, but I thought they were a little vain. That’s perhaps because of their backgrounds, but I didn’t feel too invested in any of them. The relationships between them were interesting though.

I loved the entire thought-provoking part of this book. The author also has a way with painting scenery in a way that’s easy to visualize. This was my first book by this author, but I think I will be looking for more work of hers in the future.

Narration fit the story.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
