The Most Thrilling Gripped Novel Yet: Taylor’s Story

By Mackenzie Wells, Athens, GA

After reading “Gripped Part 5: Taylor’s Story,” I can say this book is my favorite in the series yet! I love the mystery of it and the high-profile suspense. The characters seem more relatable than ever before, and I love seeing how the story continues to unfold. It is crazy to see how all the details and hints from the past are starting to fall into place in the storyline. Many questions from the past are answered, but there are still some mysteries to be solved.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes true crime or mysteries. This book is thrilling without being too suspenseful. There is a nice mixture of entertainment and morals to this story. I am excited to see what happens next!
