Book Review: SpraySpray by Harry Edge

A group of teens sign up for an assassination game on the streets of a big city. Their weapons: pressurized water guns. It’s meant to be a game, a sport. But for some, it’s more than harmless fun. To win, they’ll use any means necessary.

Two hundred players. Three weeks of tense cat-and-mouse action. Every stalker is being stalked and only one player will be left standing. No one will be the same.

Through multiple points of view, Harry Edge puts readers right in the middle of the action—watch your back!

I loved the pace of this novel. The different characters you encounter and the way the book is written really makes it fast-paced and interesting. I love the different takes on the game. I also really didn't see the overarching plot come out until halfway through the novel. I think that itself really pulled the novel together. Definitely an interesting novel.

The multiple points of view in this novel really make it unique. You get to see into the eyes of some of the different players, why they're playing and what they hope to gain from it. It's also interesting to piece parts of the plot together when different events occur – thanks to these different character view points.

Final Verdict: A fun novel that I think presents an interesting look at city-wide games and how serious they can become.

    I’m on a YA ban but I think this will be one I pick up when that ban is over. I’ve been fascinated by the game since I first heard about it so a book that explores people taking it too far is intriguing.
