The Walls Around Us Review

Overview: On the outside, there's Violet, an eighteen-year-old dancer days away from the life of her dreams when something threatens to expose the shocking truth of her achievement.

On the inside, within the walls of the Aurora Hills juvenile detention center, there's Amber, locked up for so long she can't imagine freedom.

Tying their two worlds together is Orianna, who holds the key to unlocking all the girls' darkest mysteries…

What really happened on the night Orianna stepped between Violet and her tormentors? What really happened on two strange nights at Aurora Hills? Will Amber and Violet and Orianna ever get the justice they deserve—in this life or in another one?
My Thoughts: I was given this book as a review copy from Netgalley. This book sounded really interesting when I looked at it and it definitely didn't disappoint. You start off with Amber a girl who's been incarcerated for manslaughter. She's been there three years and one night the power goes out and doors unlock. Yet she feels like she's lived this night before. She sees someone a girl who doesn't belong at Aurora Hills. She doesn't even look real. And this girl calls her "Ori" a name she's never heard before. Then we see Violet who's a ballerina and days away from going off to Julliard. Orianna  (Ori) has been sent to Aurora Hills for the killing of two other ballerina's. Violet was Ori's bestfriend she was also Amber's cellmate. This book was took so many twists it was unreal. I couldn't stop reading I had to know what happened next. What really happened that night when Orianna was blamed for killing those two other girls and why Amber was seeing the prison rundown with graffiti all over it. I loved this book and was definitely happy with how it ended. Justice was definitely served! Pick this book up and start reading now!
