The Cousins is a plot twisting story with many turns which will keep you reading until the last page. 3 cousins. All from different backgrounds. All of these years the Story family had fallen apart when their estranged grandmother decided to take her children’s inheritance leaving one note, “You know what you did”, leaving no explanation. After all of these years, she asks her grandchildren to work for the summer at her resort and all 3 discover that she is not there. Milly, Jonah, and Aubry realize that their family has a lot more to hide than they thought. There are even secrets among them. They have to figure out what is going on before it is too late. They have to find out what happened to their grandmother and what happened to the Story family all of these years.
I liked this story because McManus gave a different approach than she does with most stories. I liked how she revealed secrets you would have never guessed and secret identities. It was definitely a mysterious and chilling thriller. I would recommend 13 +.
