“The Cabin” by Natasha Preston in 2016, is a based off the life of Mackenzie, friend to Josh, Megan, Kyle, Aaron and Courtney. The book begins when the six of them go on a trip to Josh’s cabin, with an unlikely accomplice of Josh’s estranged brother, Blake.

After a night of drinking, the unsupervised trip ends with six of them roofied and two of those roofied dead.

Mackenzie finds the bodies, and the police are then called. However, with no evidence of a forced break in, the cops are led to believe that one of them is the killer.

From there, the book takes you through Mackenzie’s mind as she searches for the killer and tries to convince not only herself, but the police, that her friends are not to blame. While learning more about her friends, it becomes more and more apparent that Mackenzie is a normal teenage girl who is not quite as mature as one should be when looking for a murderer.

However, while the simplicity of the main character’s mind may bother you, the ending will bother you even more. Preston leads you down a winding road and leaves you standing on a cliff. There is no release from the ending either, as there is not a second book, so you are left wondering what happens, though some may enjoy creating their own ending.

This book is recommended for those who enjoy thrills and twists throughout a book, while also enjoying being left on the edge of their seat with no release. I would give this novel a 6/10.
