 The Innocents weaves a saga of nail-biting drama, breathless romance, and gothic mystery perfect for fans of ABC's Revenge. 

Though they share the same blood, Alice and Charlie couldn’t be more different. Alice is older (by one year and one day), shy and reserved, a cool blonde, a painter, a reader, a thinker. Charlie is feisty and uninhibited, a wild brunette, the kind of girl who punches a bully right in the mouth. They hate each other. They love each other. They stand by each other, when no one else will. They’re sisters.

Then their parents divorce. Soon, Alice, Charlie, and their mother are leaving their old life behind. They’re saying goodbye to their cramped Cambridge apartment and driving along the rocky Connecticut coastline—to their stepfather's summer estate in the wealthy town of Serenity Point.

The minute they drive through the gates, they wish they never had. Their arrival reopens old wounds, memories of lost loves, best friends—and bitter rivals. The people of Serenity Point thought the past was dead and buried. They were wrong.

Although "The Innocents" is billed as a YA novel, its pitch-perfect style, totally developed characters, and suspense-filled plot make it a perfect book for anyone who loves good fiction. The only problem with this 21st-century "Rebecca"-type Gothic is that we have to wait for the next in the series to get on with the story. Hopefully Ms Peloquin will get this published soon!

Bought this book as a gift for my niece and she insisted I read it. Don't need to be chronologically young to enjoy, this young-at-heart reader found it to be pleasurable on many levels. Bravo Peloquin!

Mysterious Wrench
My Summary
Alice and Charlie's mom just married Richard Flood the Third, an insanely rich man who's wife died of cancer and who's daughter, Camilla, died merely months after. They almost immediately move to Serenity Point, a beach area filled with rich people, all with their own sinister secrets surrounding Camilla and her demise. But even more creepy, Alice happens to look exactly like Camilla and there's no way she can let those secrets stay hidden. Not when her sister is pulling away and these secrets seem to affect her family personally. But maybe the people at Serenity Point aren't the only ones with secrets.

Writing
The writing? There was just something I can't pinpoint that made me completely love the writing. It was just...gorgeous. I mean, I could read one word and be completely sucked in immediately. I could barely put it down!
And yes, The Innocents is written in the 3rd person POV, and maybe sometimes it seemed that it should be in the 1st, but this way The Innocents could switch between Alice and Charlie's POV without any confusion and much more ease. It may seem weird at times that in the beginning one chapter was all Alice, another all Charlie, and that after it would switch between one then the other in a paragraphs, but they switched at exactly the right time if that makes sense. But mainly, Alice was our narrator and I found it so much more enjoyable!

The Sisters
Which leads us to characters. Alice was definitely my favorite sister. She's a bookworm (Which basically everyone reading this can connect to), quiet, shy, but she watches. She's the one who notices the little things, the one who can usually catch on before anyone else, and it was just amazing that we went through 80% of the book from her perspective. Because she caught the details when Charlie blew them off as paranoia. Alice is the older, more wiser sister you could say. She knows when enough is enough and she won't bend to ANYBODY'S will. Completely the opposite of her sister.

Charlie. Oh Charlie, Charlie, Charlie. Most of these characters I loved to hate, but especially her. She was just so...agh. I don't whether it was because I liked Alice more, but Charlie just annoyed me so much especially when abandoning her sister for a guy (who I'll talk about later) or told Alice that she was just being a downer. Please. But when you read from her point of view...you just can't blame her (no matter how much disdain you're nursing). She's the wild, unpredictable one. She always fits in.She's never had much trouble in guys, until Jude. More on that below. I definitely think both of these sisters are two characters all readers can relate to. If not one, then the other!

The Love Interests
Since we started with Alice, let's start with her love interest. Tommy. Yes, the name sounds a bit awkward lol. But Tommy is such a sweet guy, with such a nice personality. Like incredibly incredibly sweet. He fit Alice perfectly, quiet and understanding. But of course, the Innocents is all about secrets. And he has secrets of his own. Ones that could maybe, and quite probably, change everything.

Jude. Can. I. Kill him? Pretty please? Okay, I totally wanted to murder Jude. He was such a tool. He played with Charlie, drawing her away from Alice, and not even really caring about her. And Charlie knew that. But she was just so desperate for him. I don't even know why! He was cute. His personality isn't exactly a gem. Jude was, quite frankly, a son of a bleep. He's the other character I loved to hate. He strung Charlie along, but the worst part is...well, you'll have to read and find out.

Plot/Plot Twists
They weren't so much as twists as things that were already there. Secrets that become unveiled, reasons and intents become clearer, and all of them are slowly leading up to the big giant, juicy plot twist that's just waiting to be read. While some people think that there was only the one twist, there were so many more subtle ones that would've been hard to catch if you weren't looking for them.
All of these...ohmygoodness, there were so many hints lying around. I would collect them but I wouldn't connect the dots and was so shocked! You guys...be sure you aren't in a squeal-free zone like the library when you finish the last hundred pages or so. Also, ghosts. Yes. Ghosts.

The Bad
With a few grammar errors, my complete lack of understanding as to why Jude was such a catch, those were pretty much my only complaints on the novel. While it was uber amazing, it didn't affect me quite as much emotionally as I'd hoped. But still. Amazing.

Overall
The Innocents is a stunning debut with gorgeous writing and even more gorgeous content. This debut is definitely a favorite and takes a whole new meaning to "dangerous secrets". With main characters the readers can relate to, the Innocents will both shock you and make you giddy for more. Filled with secrets, lies, and...unrequited love? The Innocents is one to grab for those who are looking for something new in the contemporary section. One that will make you grit your teeth and squeal at the same time, this is not a book to be taken lightly! After all, when everyone has a secret, who can you really trust?

I'm a little bit at a loss for what to say about this. At the end I was really pleased, but at the same time the whole rest of the book felt a little lost to me. We followed the story of the two sisters, but it felt like it was a book more about Alice, the older sister. We got a glimpse into Charlie's life, but at the end it felt like we hardly discussed her. I got attached to her sprialing out of control story, and wanted to know more.

I did like their sisterly bond until it did fall apart as they both adjusted to their lives in this new town. Considering that the book only takes places over the span of only two weeks, it would seem that their bond isn't as strong as they thought. Both of them were interesting and distinct not only in their looks, but also their personalities.

A lot of the characters in this book had great personalities, but to be honest, it reminded me of Gossip Girl on the beach. Jude reminded me a lot of Chuck although the whole cousin love thing was a little bizarre. The other thing that was strange with Alice and Tommy and how she looked just like Camilla, her dead stepsister and how Tommy seemed to love her.

This book also attacked me with some insta-love, which was a little ick. Luckily it wasn't in your face, but it got under my skin when these two characters said I love you. As I said, this book takes place over two weeks. I felt that Alice was very morbidly obsessed with Camilla, which was strange in the least.

I liked some of the techniques that Peloquin used when writing this book, and I am excited to check out the second book in this series.
