A smart and terrifying teen horror novel inspired by Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None, from Get Even author Gretchen McNeil--now a Lifetime Original Movie!

Ten teens. Three days. One killer.

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?

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!

I loved this book so much. I'm not sure about others, but this was a pretty quick read for me. It only took me about a day to finish. Like it says on the back, this novel is a real page turner. I couldn't stop reading. Amazing story and characters. You won't see what's coming-

This book was amazing. Finally a murder mystery where the plot is not completely obvious from the beginning. I didn't figure out who it was until 40 pages left and even then the book makes you second guess yourself. Aside from a few moments where the teens get flirty in the middle of murders and you want to smack them, this is one of the better teen books I've read in a while.

"Best friends Meg and Minnie are expecting an awesome weekend at an exclusive, two-day house party on isolated Henry Island. But once they arrive, the girls feel a sense of foreboding... the hostess is conspicuously absent, the only DVD in the house bears a creepy warning, and as a storm begins to rage outside, the power goes out. Everyone at the party is trapped with no electricity, no phones, no internet, and no way off the island for the next three days. And then the guests start turning up dead. With "all the hallmarks of a traditional slasher flick" (Publishers Weekly), this gory murder mystery based loosely on Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None will thrill horror movie fans."

This book as a wonderful plot and is suspenseful the whole time. Its the type of book that you wouldn't mind reading over and over again! The main character is a writer that can be sarcastic and funny. Which I love! Since this books genre is horror, the author added some comic-relief to enlighten the readers. Even though this book is called "Ten" I'm pretty sure its number one to me! :)

This was the most fun I had reading a book in a while. Fast-paced and suspenseful! If you enjoyed And Then There Were None as much as I do, then you'll love this updated retelling!
