Review | The Hand on the Wall (Truly Devious #3) by Maureen Johnson

“The wonderful thing about reality is that it is highly flexible. One minute, all is doom; the next, everything is abloom with possibility.” 4.5/5 stars!

Attention! This book contains: marble watches, old paintings, domes, lakes, storms, moving toes, secret passages, lost diaries, dynamite and a hand on the wall.

I was waiting for this book to come out for a very long time and I was not disappointed with the outcome! I instantly fell in love with this series when I read the first book – Truly Devious – and fortunately, the third book is just as amazing as the previous ones.

What took me by surprise is how the Alice kidnapping still had a lot of secrets to unveil. You would think that after discovering who kidnapped Alice in the second book the mystery was finally solved. Well, it’s not over yet! There were still a lot of secrets and information that were revealed in this book that were needed to understand the whole picture.

The writing is super good and I love that there were so many references to other mystery novels like Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None! I personally was not a fan of every single character – especially David who I forgot was super annoying and a complete douchebag – but Stevie will forever have a place in my heart.

I would say the main mystery is definitely the coolest part of this series. Every detail is carefully layered so that when you think you know everything, the author drops another bomb and you will question everything again.

I am very sad that this series is over, but I have to admit the conclusion was very good and very well planned. If you like mystery and YA books, this is definitely a treat. It’s fun, it’s young and the mystery will knock your socks off! It’s completely worth it.

xoxo, Neide
