Welcome to Berry Bits, where I talk about something I just finished such as a video game, book, anime.
The Walls Around Us
by Nova Ren Suma
Type: Book | Genre: Mystery, Paranormal | Books: 1
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?

Just finished this yesterday. I was very slow to begin, as I borrowed this from the library nearly 4 weeks ago and it’s due tomorrow.
At first, I wasn’t really into the writing style. I was also confused about everything for awhile. In a “what the fudge is going on kind of way”. Though this also made me want to continue reading to find out what WAS happening.
I’m glad I labored onward.
There was a moment I forgot the book had supernatural elements, but it’s really subtle regardless. I believe it was a good subtlety. Reading the book reminded me of some of my favorite stories that makes you theorizing and guess until the end – and even after you’re done with it.
It surprised me at the end, and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Thanks for reading!
