Review: Saving Ben
Saving Ben by Ashley Farley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Saving Ben by Ashley Farley follows Katherine (Kitty Cat) through her first year as a college student. Born into a privileged family, Katherine and her older brother Ben have never really had their parents for love and support, but they have had each other. When Katherine's new roommate seems too good to be true, Ben starts to date her and Katherine is very friendly. Things, however, take a turn when Emma starts to be manipulative and gets Ben started on a path her never thought he would take.
This was an intriguing novel It definitely kept my interest throughout the story, and I was very emotionally connected to the main character, especially when all of the other characters in the book started to turn on her. Anyone who's had a bad roommate can easily relate to this, though the book takes it a few steps further.
The only issue I had with the book is that it took way too long from the opening scene to get through all of the back story. While a lot of it was necessary, the pace back to present moment could have been a little quicker. Anyone who loves to read a good suspense story will want to check this one out.
