Severed

Young Adult - contemporary - mystery - 150 pages

When snarky college student, Rory Halstead, witnesses a crime on campus, he must go to extreme measures to overcome his neurological disability and help police identify the suspect before a girl is murdered and Rory is pinned for it. 

Of course, I look guilty. I'm the guy who was at the scene of the crime and won't tell anyone what he saw. My stupid, useless brain couldn’t form the words. No surprise there, I told them it would happen. Now I’m sitting in an interrogation room with no less than three cops watching me from the double-sided mirror as if they can hear the tangential cascades in my head. They also see a blank notepad in front of me.

I’m going to prison for this

Solid story that is certainly like nothing else I’ve read.

It’s a short read but it still manages to believably build suspense without making the story feel too rushed. I definitely recommend it to others.
