In Say her Name we meet Roberta Rowe (her nickname is Bobbie isn’t the person who believes in ghosts. So when she gets a Halloween dare, she doesn’t think much of it, especially since her best friend Naya and a cute local boy called Caine join her.
They are ordered to summon the ghost of ‘Bloody Mary’: they have to say her name five times in front of a candlelit mirror, and the legend goes she will appear…
The morning after the ‘summoning’, Bobbie finds a shocking message on a bathroom mirror ‘five days’. But what does that message mean? And who wrote it? Things are starting to get weirder and more terrifying for Bobbie, Naya and Caine, until it all becomes clear that they indeed summoned Bloody Mary, and Mary is not a friendly ghost.
Bobbie, Naya and Caine are in a race against time. They have five days before Mary is coming for them…
Say her Name has been on my shelf for a while. I remember giving it a go a while ago, but I couldn’t really get in to the book. This was also the case now. I definitely had some trouble getting in the story. It wasn’t because it was bad or anything, it just wasn’t grabbing my attention, even though I was liking the way the story was heading.
So, the moment you’re actually sucked into the story it is very hard to actually stop reading! I had serious issues when I tried to stop reading, because I couldn’t!
The plot in this book was different and original, which made it certainly unexpected!
This book wasn’t as horro-ish as I expected it to be, but I did like it in the end! It was also so creative!
I ended up giving it 3,5 out of 5 stars.
