"Brockman's novel of secrets and murder at a New England college will undoubtedly remind readers of Donna Tartt's The Secret History. Dripping with drama and mystery, Tell Me Everything is a page turner to the last." --Newsweek
"The development of Malin as a narrator is truly inspired.
. . . [She] draws riveting attention to humankind's vulnerability
to evil. . . . A truly chilling thriller with a twist so quiet, you
never hear it coming."--Kirkus Reviews (starred
review) "Tension builds in a narrative that switches back and
forth between Senior Day and freshman year, punctuated by
flashbacks to events in Malin's childhood, and the tension is
amplified by the focus on an insular group in an isolated setting.
. . . Brockman's first novel will appeal to readers looking for
another Gone Girl."--Booklist (starred review)
"An edgy exploration of loyalty and human desire. Readers in search of a true page-turner will savor this electrifying novel."--BookPage (starred review) "Tell Me Everything ultimately does tell all; yet, in line with psychologically twisted college clique tales, not before putting the reader through a maddeningly enjoyable wringer. Malin is patently unreliable, but in a wonderfully fresh, clear-headed way. . . . Brockman has turned in a compelling slow burn with focus justly on its furtive protagonist. Malin's retelling of each period in her life is fraught with competing control and unease that make for a dynamite combination." --Shelf Awareness "The aptly named Malin, as smart as she is misanthropic, narrates this tale of collegiate rivalry--we see the Maine campus and her flawed friends through her disaffected eyes, even as she conceals the details of what has left one of them dead. In this dark romp through a world of privilege and petty slights, it's hard not to get caught up in the question of which of the characters is doomed, and who is most responsible."--Caite Dolan-Leach, author of We Went to the Woods "One word: J-U-I-C-Y."--Woman's Day "Clear your schedule--from its stunner of a first chapter, Tell Me Everything will have you reading all night until you reach its terrifying-but-perfect conclusion. The vivid characters, tangled by the bonds of college friendship and mad love, will remind you of the work of Donna Tartt and the master of Maine stories, Stephen King."--Amanda Eyre Ward, author of The Same Sky and How to Be Lost "Brockman perfectly captures the insecurities that plague young adults, as well as the intense relationships that form in the crucible that is college. Deliberate pacing complements the sinuous structure, with anxiety and dread mounting as the story lines coalesce. . . . Fans of Patricia Highsmith and Donna Tartt should take notice."--Publishers Weekly "Brockman uses her suspenseful novel to shed light on the insularity of the college experience, especially at a small, rural school like Hawthorne. She also vividly illustrates the lengths to which many (if not all) college students go in order to reinvent themselves as they make a fresh start in a new environment. Almost everyone here is hiding something behind their earnest, intellectual, forward-looking veneers--and some secrets are darker than others."--Bookreporter
