The Deviants by C.J. Skuse

Ella, Max, Corey, Fallon and Zane.

The Fearless five, inseparable as children growing up in a sleepy English seaside town. But when Max’s older sister is killed, the friendship seems to die with her.

Only Max and Ella are in touch, still best friends and a couple since they were thirteen.

But Ella is hiding things – like why she is afraid to take their relationship to the next level. And when underdog Corey is bullied, the Fearless Five are brought back together again, teaming up to wreak havoc and revenge on those who have wronged them.

But when the secrets they are keeping can no longer be kept quiet, will their fearlessness be enough to save them from themselves?

I would like to take the opportunity to address C.J. Skuse instead of just writing a general review as I feel so strongly about this, please bear with me:

What the boldly hell were you thinking? Toying with my feelings like this?

The Deviants delivered a round-house kick to my emotions, it was by turns gripping, tender, exciting and heart-breaking! I began reading thinking I was reading one type of story and it ended being another type altogether!
Ella, Max, Corey, Fallon and Zane held my attention over three wonderful, upsetting evenings, the way you told their story in the present time and peeled back time to what had gone before was nothing short of masterful! I ran the whole gamut of emotions while reading and had tears in my eyes at the end.
Thank you!
