I was so caught I couldn’t put it down till the end!

I loved the story however by chapter 16 I thought I knew the ending, then by 30 I had another conclusion and I was wrong again. So all the ways till chapter 34 in one day because I couldn’t wait to find out what happened next! The title what happened was fits this book perfectly
