The Special Ones by Em Bailey, 319 Pages

This book caught my eye because I have a weird interest in cults, and it seemed like a short read, so I picked it up and finished it in less than 24 hours because I couldn't put it down! It's just the right amount of creepy, and the last few chapters were very suspenseful.

Four teenagers have been kidnapped, and are now being held in a farmhouse. They are referred to as The Special Ones by "him"- someone they've never actually seen, but controls their every move and thought. Their lives are broadcast via the internet for a group of followers, and any slip ups in the characters they're forced to be results in a "renewal". Esther realizes that she's not who "him" says she is, but is in survival mode knowing her only chance of escaping is continuing in her role.
