The Tenth Girl Book Review

Goodreads Summary: Simmering in Patagonian myth, The Tenth Girl is a gothic psychological thriller with a haunting twist.

At the very southern tip of South America looms an isolated finishing school. Legend has it that the land will curse those who settle there. But for Mavi—a bold Buenos Aires native fleeing the military regime that took her mother—it offers an escape to a new life as a young teacher to Argentina’s elite girls.

Mavi tries to embrace the strangeness of the imposing house—despite warnings not to roam at night, threats from an enigmatic young man, and rumors of mysterious Others. But one of Mavi’s ten students is missing, and when students and teachers alike begin to behave as if possessed, the forces haunting this unholy cliff will no longer be ignored.

One of these spirits holds a secret that could unravel Mavi’s existence. In order to survive she must solve a cosmic mystery—and then fight for her life.

Thoughts: I’m so conflicted with my feelings about this book. I listened to it on audio and feel that I should’ve done this with a ebook or physical book. I’m so confused with the last hours of this book. The twists is confusing and I dont know if I like it or hate it but what I know is it confuses me. This one is hard to review without spoiling anything so pardon me if I sound vague.

I enjoy having two different perspectives throughout the whole book because it makes me more invested in the ghost story. It makes me wonder what was happening throughout the story and how things played out. I liked hearing what happened when Dominico was involved and when he no longer was involved.

The ending reminds me of some of the movies I’ve seen recently. I hate trying to figure out if something in a book is real or not especially if the book didn’t tell you that was going to happen. I think the ending just confused me more than explained this book. I might just reread this one in physical form so that I can fully enjoy it. It definitely is one that each reader will get something different from.

I recommend this to you if you like mystery and twists at the end of the book. Twists that may or make not make sense to you.

If you’ve read this book let me know what you think. Also talk to me about the twist ending, how did you take it?

You can get this book at Barnes and Noble or look for it at your local library.
