“A well-written book.”


In this book, we follow Ivy, a seventeen-year-old girl who is studying at a fashion school. Ivy has two best friends; Marsha and Kim. She always spends a lot of time with her friends, until her boyfriend Sander became more and more important in her life. Sander calls Ivy ‘s friends childish and thinks that Ivy should distance herself from her friends. But Marsha and Kim are concerned about Ivy. They don’t trust Sander and they wonder what Ivy actually knows about Sander. Ivy realizes that she doesn’t really know much about Sander. But what she does know, she doesn’t dare to share with her friends.


I had been waiting for this book for a while and of course, I ordered this book right away when it came out. When I finally received it, I started reading right away, I read this book very quickly.

I am not really into the loverboy type of stories, but I decided to give this a try because I think Chinouk Thijssen is a great writer. The story is well written, but I thought it was a typical loverboy story. Nothing wrong with that of course, but you knew what was going to happen at the end. Still, Thijssen will surprise you with a plot twist at the end, which of course, we are used from her.

I always find it difficult to read loverboy stories, because you realize what the girl has fallen for, and there is nothing you can do about it. I also had that with this book. I was sometimes very annoyed by Ivy because she was so gullible.

I also think that this book brings out an important message. Unfortunately, there are many young people who deal with this heavy topic, and in this book, you unfortunately, see the consequences of these bad events.

I think this book is a beautifully written book – I read through it very quickly. I had been waiting for this book for a long time, so to finally receive it and read it was very nice. I’m super happy to add another book to my Chinouk-book collection.


A beautifully written book that you read through very quickly. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes these types of books. I would also recommend this book to people who enjoy reading Thijssen’s books.
