The viewpoints hop around a bit but the majority of the book is told from the perspectives of Pearl a local police officer with a complicated past and Jackie the mother of 2 boys Connor and Wade Wade being a high school senior along with Liam the boy who gets run over and put into intensive care If I Die Tonight was a bit of a police procedural at times but I would say only about 25% of the total novel was like this if not less math isn't my strong suit The book also played with some different formats like chapters that are comments and posts taken from Facebook and Instagram It added something extra to the story and I really enjoyed the deviation from the norm I've actually been seeing this in recent books and I love itI did think it could be a little slow at times especially in the beginning middle but not to the point where I was ready to abandon it There is a lot going on in this book and definitely some heavy subject matters It touches on cyber bullying bullying in general and how in a small town where everyone knows everyone rumors and speculations can have a huge effect on how people treat you The use of social media is also a very prominent theme in this novel Luckily Gaylin added some humor into the book which ended up being a nice respite from some of the heavier parts Now the characters; I wouldn't say that I really connected to any of them but I definitely felt for Connor Wade and Jackie And also Pearl as we get to know her story All of the characters in this book felt very real and human to me Final Thought The ending gave me chills and I had no idea what was going to happen overall There were a few revelations that I definitely wasn't expecting and one thing I kinda saw coming I cannot BELIEVE this was my first novel by Gaylin and now I want to read her backlog ASAP to see what else I have been missing She definitely has an instant fan in me If I Die Tonight in 3 words Engrossing Touching and SurprisingThis title is expected to be published on 06 Mar 2018
