The Chalk Man By C.J. Tudor {Book Review}

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review. All opinions remain my own and weren’t influenced.

In 1986, Eddie and his friends are just kids on the verge of adolescence. They spend their days biking around their sleepy English village and looking for any taste of excitement they can get. The chalk men are their secret code: little chalk stick figures they leave for one another as messages only they can understand. But then a mysterious chalk man leads them right to a dismembered body, and nothing is ever the same.
In 2016, Eddie is fully grown, and thinks he’s put his past behind him. But then he gets a letter in the mail, containing a single chalk stick figure. When it turns out that his friends got the same message, they think it could be a prank . . . until one of them turns up dead. That’s when Eddie realizes that saving himself means finally figuring out what really happened all those years ago.


My Thoughts!

This suspense novel is one for the books! I loved every minute of it and thoroughly enjoyed Tudor’s writing style.  It was well written and easy to follow. It’s fast paced and  the characters are well developed. I love that they were relatable and unique. This book offered some darkness,  unexpected twists, and flashbacks that will keep you flipping through the pages. The flashbacks are seamless and easy to follow. I love that I didn’t get lost with them or feel like I was missing parts of the story.  I would recommend it to others, though I’d say it’s more appropriate for young adults.
