“With evocative language, a shifting timeline and more than one unreliable narrator, Suma subtly explores the balance of power between the talented and the mediocre, the rich and the poor, the brave and the cowardly . . . To reveal more would be to uncover the bloody heart that beats beneath the floorboards of this urban-legend-tinged tale.” —The New York Times

 

The Walls Around Us is a ghostly story of suspense told in two voices--one still living and one dead. On the outside, there’s Violet, an eighteen-year-old ballerina days away from the life of her dreams when something threatens to expose the shocking truth of her achievement. On the inside, within the walls of a girls’ juvenile detention center, there’s Amber, locked up for so long she can’t imagine freedom. Tying these two worlds together is Orianna, who holds the key to unlocking all the girls’ darkest mysteries: What really happened on the night Orianna stepped between Violet and her tormentors? What really happened on two strange nights at Aurora Hills? Will Amber and Violet and Orianna ever get the justice they deserve--in this life or in another one?

This novel is a perfect combination of horror and thriller. It´s a kind of ghost story (mostly in the end) and throughout you have this dark atmosphere. The characters are well-described and there are two timelines to follow. While some of the characters are dislikefull, you learn to like others and understand the true meaning of innocent and guilty. It was a fast read for me, because the story was thrilling and I always wanted to know more about what actually happened. The ending is kind of a mind fuck and leaves you thinking.
