REVIEW: "44" - by Jools Sinclair

by Jools Sinclair

REVIEWED BY: Books4Tomorrow


Last year after falling through the ice, seventeen-year-old Abby Craig woke up from death - but she woke into a world she barely recognizes. She can't see colors, memories have been erased, and her friends all hate her. And then there's Jesse, who she loves, but who refuses to forgive her the one mistake she made long ago.

Just when she thinks it can't get any worse, the visions begin. In them, she sees a faceless serial killer roaming the streets. While the police believe that there have been a lot of accidents in town lately, Abby knows differently. And she soon realizes that it's up to her to find him. But to stop him, she'll have to confront more than just the killer. She'll have to face something else that was lost in those dark waters: the truth.


This book started out really interesting, but soon lost momentum. It’s a very average plot with no real twists, and although the author tries very hard to place the reader’s suspicion of whodunnit on the wrong character, the “twist” really wasn’t much of a revelation. I can’t say I connected with the characters as not much was done to fluff them out, and no effort was made to get the reader to feel anything for them. The only redeeming quality for me – and the reason for the three-star rating - was the little surprise right at the end. I’m happy I got this as a free download and though I’m recommending it with three stars, there was nothing in this story that motivated me to read the other four books in this series.
