Outsiders - Bailey Vaughn

When the small town of Patterson Falls decides to open its homes to outsiders little did they know that they were embarking on a nightmare.

Now when I read the blurb for this book I thought it was a little vague but it sounded interesting enough. When I started to read I found the whole thing to be very rushed and sometimes confusing. A lot of the scenes were so lacking in description that even my imagination couldn’t fill in the blanks. I think the main problem was trying to fit it all into a novella and not enough time was spent giving us the information we required to make sense of the plot. The characters were flat and I struggled to connect with them, which left me with no feeling for them or their situation at all.

The actual writing was comfortable and I found no issues with copy editing my problem is purely with the execution of the plot, and character development.
