This book was FANTASTIC!!!! The writing quality and use of suspense, foreshadowing, and numerous, chilling perspectives in the novel by gifted author Nova Ren Suma landed this novel at the top of my favorites list. The characters are honest and real, brutal and twisted, misjudged and misunderstood. Tension builds with every sentence and chapter as you wait to find out who's really innocent and who has or hasn't gotten what they deserve. This book gives weight to the idea that everything isn't always black and white and that the line between justice and injustice, true and false, is a lot foggier than you think it is. Everyone should read this book. "The Walls Around Us" is an exceptional read.
