When what was supposed to be a fun night of Nerf gun wars in an abandoned fish processing plant turned deadly, an unsuspecting group of high school students ended up testifying for classmate Rachel Gaston, and helping her get away with the murder of her brother, Luke. While the small town of Edgewater, Oregon hoped to live past this horrible night, the now coming up 20 year high school reunion keeps bringing up memories, and for Rachel worsening nightmares, and feelings of being followed and constantly watched. Due to strange events, real or imagined, Luke's case comes back to light as Rachel, her crumbling family, and the short list of people in her high school class she can still call her friends struggle through accusations and fights to try to settle once and for all what happened in the fish processing plant, and how it still haunted those who were there that night 20 years ago.
Paranoid is a mystery, crime novel that I would recommend to anyone who enjoys adventure and thrill. I would recommend this book to young adults. The book starts right away with the murder of a high school boy in a small town, which automatically sets the pace for an exciting book that you won't be able to put down. As the story progresses with strange events you won't see coming, the mystery and crime gets more intense. Lisa Jackson provides plot twists and leaves you hanging until the very end, as you try to solve the case along with the police and investigators until the very end when all the facts and evidence are provided. I really enjoyed this book, and hope others who have read it/will read it enjoy it as much as I do!
