The Reunion 
by Kit Frick
Pub Date: August 29, 2023 (Simon Teen)
Genre: YA Mystery/Thriller, Contemporary 

It’s been years since the fragmented Mayweather clan was all in one place, but the engagement of Addison and Mason’s mom to the dad of their future stepbrother, Theo, brings the whole family to sunny Cancún, Mexico, for winter break. Add cousin Natalia to the mix, and it doesn’t take long for tempers to fray and tensions to rise. A week of forced family “fun” reveals that everyone has something to hide, and as secrets bubble to the surface, no one is safe from the fallout. By the end of the week, one member of the reunion party will be dead—and everyone’s a suspect:
The peacekeeper: Addison needs a better hiding place.
The outsider: Theo just wants to mend fences.
The romantic: Natalia doesn’t want to talk about the past.
The hothead: Mason needs to keep his temper under control.

It started as a week in paradise meant to bring them together. But the Mayweathers are about to learn the hard way that family bonding can be deadly.

Kit Frick is a MacDowell fellow and ITW Thriller Award finalist from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She studied creative writing at Sarah Lawrence College and received her MFA from Syracuse University. She is the author of multiple thrillers including, for young adults, Before We Were Sorry (originally published as See All the Stars), All Eyes on Us, I Killed Zoe Spanos, Very Bad People, and The Reunion, and for adults, The Split.

Are you ready for a killer family reunion set at a posh Cancún resort?  The latest YA mystery by Kit Frick was an intriguing whodunnit that kept me guessing until the very end.  

Told from multiple perspectives (of twins Addison & Mason, their cousin Natalia, and the twins’ soon to be stepbrother, Theo), The Reunion was a drama-fueled mystery that made me never want to attend a family reunion ever again.  Talk about a dysfunctional family!  The Mayweathers definitely needed some intensive family therapy.  

A lot happened in this story and it was sometimes hard to keep up with everything going on with the characters.  There was plenty of family drama and sooo many secrets.  I loved the mystery and I was surprised by the ending.  

I had a lot of fun reading this story.  You should definitely read this book if you love YA murder mysteries.  The Reunion was an immersive page-turner and I look forward to reading more from Kit Frick.
