...I felt it wasn't one of those books that made you want to keep reading and keep reading it until you got to the end, it was more of one of those books you could drag out for a really long time and never think about it.

Synopsis

Mallory killed her boyfriend, Brian. She can't remember the details of that night but everyone knows it was self-defense, so she isn't charged. But Mallory still feels Brian's presence in her life. Is it all in her head? Or is it something more? In desperate need of a fresh start, Mallory is sent to Monroe, a fancy prep school where no one knows her . . . or anything about her past. But the feeling follows her, as do her secrets. Then, one of her new classmates turns up dead. As suspicion falls on Mallory, she must find a way to remember the details of both deadly nights so she can prove her innocence-to herself and others.

In another riveting tale of life and death, Megan Miranda's masterful storytelling brings readers along for a ride to the edge of sanity and back again.

I thought Hysteria was quite hard to understand at the beginning of the book. And then when I did start to understand what was going on it got a bit boring because Mallory was doing the same thing every day.

That said, I adored the friendship between Mallory and Colleen. I’m a big fan of strong female friendships, and they definitely had one...And for me, this is where the rest of the book begins to unravel. When one thing is done so well, the flaws of the other aspects stand out sharply....I think this novel tried to do too many things...
