He's After Me by Chris Higgins

A thrilling read from author Chris Higgins!

This story is about Anna. She meets a boy and they fall in love. They have amazing times together and everything is good. Yet beneath all this lies another story full of dark actions and obsessions.

Higgins has successfully captured the world from a young girls point of view. Although it is a quick read, we get to know the character, Anna, and get a feel for what her life is like before and after Jem enters. I like how sinister, mysterious and dark the novel turns into, and how i was just waiting for something dramatic to happen... which didn't disappoint! Anna develops in personality as we read further into the book. I felt that i knew why she did some of her actions because we can relate to her and the situation she is in. It definitely portrayed that feeling you get when love takes over.

From the start of the book and throughout we get to read from the perspective of this person who is having dark thoughts, and from the use of language we know this person is going to be involved in Anna's life somehow. I really enjoyed the mystery of it and how my mind kept changing to who i thought this person was.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book because it was nice to have a change from the usual love stories!
