About the Book

FIRST WE WERE IV - coverA group of friends start a secret society in this out-of-control thriller from the author of The Telling and The Creeping that examines the all-consuming love of lifelong friendship—and what someone is capable of when they’re afraid of losing it.

Izzie loves nothing more than her three best friends, Viv, Graham, and Harry, and the bond the four of them share. And she’s terrified of their friendship falling apart next year when they go off to college. To bind them together, she decides to create that will belong only to them, a special thing that they’ll always share between the four of them. And so they dream up the Order of IV, a secret society devoted to mischief that rights wrongs and pays back debts. At first, it works like a charm—but when the Order of IV’s escapades get recognition beyond their wildest expectations, other people start wanting in. And soon, what started as a game of friendship is spiraling into something dangerous and beyond their control—and before it’s over, they’ll pay the ultimate sacrifice.

    I love this list! It was definitely a trip down memory lane with some of these characters, for me. Well done.
    I don’t like thriller-type books, so this isn’t on my TBR. I’ve heard from others that Sirowy’s books tend to be darker and scarier than what I enjoy reading. We shall see once it comes out and the reviews come in!
