Something (Wisteria Book 1) by Shelby Lamb

Something (Wisteria, #1)Something by Shelby Lamb
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Something(Wisteria, #1) by Shelby Lamb is truly a gothic style YA novel that includes a lot of teen sex scenes, scary stuff, horror and great attention to every detail of every character. Frankly, this book may be a bit much for anyone under 18 years old, there are many scenes with sex, some self harming, and lot of suicidal behavior, including one actual attempt. There is plenty of death to go around too. This is a rather crazy mix of genres, some of it works, and some of it doesn't. The story follows Aubrey, a youngish, lost soul, with her pink hair, self abuse, and random sex with strangers. To say she is a mess is an understatement. She is at once being bullied, and yet seems somewhat fragile, while trying to act tough. The horror element in the novel is rather light, and that may appeal to some, as it is not over the top scary. The author has written this story well enough to warrant a second look at the next installment.
