The 27 Club has a very interesting premise. It sort of reminded me of the movie 13 Going on 30 with a dark, paranormal twist. I went in blind with zero knowledge about the meaning of the title, and this made for a really cool aha moment when I realized what was going on. So if you’ve never heard of The 27 Club, I suggest not looking it up until you read this book!
The first ten chapters or so detail Erika Takai’s horrible birthday experiences, year after year. I have to admit, all of her “bad luck” put me in a funk, and I kept wondering when things were going to get better for her. Well, when that moment arrives, it isn’t what it seems, and her newfound good fortune has a price. At that point, I didn’t want to stop reading until I knew what Erika’s fate would be.
If you enjoy new adult books with paranormal elements that explore fate and second chances, then you might enjoy this one.
