You won't be disappointed by this one. It's a fast-paced story and a quick read, with short chapters, told from the first-person perspective of seven of the characters. This allows you to know the thoughts of all the characters. A unique way to tell the story. It was unpredictable, with a twist at the end that I could not have seen coming.

This book is one of the best I have read, and I have read many good ones. You are lead through a story from the perpective of different characters but it is still easy to follow, then at the end is a twist that made me say "wow". Beach Road is definately worth your time.
