Publisher Comments:

From Possess author Gretchen McNeil comes this teen horror novel inspired by Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None. Perfect for fans of Christopher Pike's Chain Letter and Lois Duncan's I Know What You Did Last Summer, Ten will keep readers on the edge of their seats until the very last page!

It was supposed to be the weekend of their lives — an exclusive house party on Henry Island. Best friends Meg and Minnie are looking forward to two days of boys, booze, and fun-filled luxury. But what starts out as fun turns twisted after the discovery of a DVD with a sinister message: Vengeance is mine. And things only get worse from there.

With a storm raging outside, the teens are cut off from the outside world . . . so when a mysterious killer begins picking them off one by one, there's no escape. As the deaths become more violent and the teens turn on one another, can Meg find the killer before more people die? Or is the killer closer to her than she could ever imagine?

Cayden W, December 15, 2013 (view all comments by Cayden W)
Ten teenagers are on an island that is completely isolated from the rest of the world. To them, it sounds like a perfect weekend. However, the unexpecting teens are dying one by one. As the deaths become more violent, the teens start blaming each other. With extremely gripping twists and turns, Meg, the main character, tries to track down the killer.
I loved this book because it was gripping and it was very hard to keep from reading. Ten was also complicated, yet I could still understand it. The author, Gretchen McNeil, includes details that are so vivid, I can see the story in my head. I would recommend this book to someone who likes fast moving, gripping, horror books or movies. I would also recommend this book to someone who wants a good scare.
