Genre: YA Psychological Thriller
As she waits to give her statement in one of the interrogation rooms of
Arcata Police Department, Abigale recites the same line over and over
inside her head.
I did not kill anyone.
I did not kill anyone.
But there’s a trail of bodies, and it leads straight to her. The events
that brought her to this very moment all point to one thing…her guilt.
She must convince Detective Collins of her innocence, but how can she
explain her ties to the victims, and the evidence that has her name
written all over it?
Then there’s the mysterious Facebook profile. DarkHeart434.
Who is DarkHeart434? And why does it seem like this person has all the
answers, including the identity of the real murderer?
As pieces of the puzzle start to come together, everything about
Abigale’s life begins to unravel—her past, her present…and even
her self-proclaimed innocence.

Delusions’ synopsis and cover intrigued me and made me want to read the book. It is a psychological Thriller told by Abigale, who is being accused of murdering one of her friends.
The book goes back and forth from Abigale’s interrogation and flashbacks, so you’re reading everything that leads up to how she ends up in the interrogation room. I believe this was a genius thing the author did. The whole time I was reading I believed Abigale was guilty. The twist and reveal were done at the right moment and the author does a wonderful job getting you interested in the secondary characters. However, I was mainly interested in finding out if Abigale was guilty or being set up.
Overall this was a great thriller. It kept my attention, had me invested in the characters and anticipating what would happened next. There was some repetitive sections with Abigale and her friends, but it didn’t take away from the plot of the book. I recommend Delusions to those who love suspense and psychological thrillers.
