16 yr. olds Michelle, Jen, Steve, Jeremy and Becky have been friends since they were little. Even after a fatal tragedy there bond was really strong. However, cracks begin to show when Jen starts to hear a whistling man and Michelle has a secret that is soon to be revealed.

From the start, you can tell Michelle is the leader. She takes control of the group and is able to calm them down when they want to go off on a mad idea. I feel she can be manipulative especially with Jen and with her list making, I feel she is hiding something. Jen is the complete opposite and whilst she suffered a tragedy a few years before, I found her to be annoying and felt that she wanted to play the victim. One instance was when she had something to tell the group and I felt like shaking her and telling her to get on with it. Jeremy and Steve were hot headed and were protective over the girls. I could not make my mind up about Becky as she was the quiet one and got a bit overshadowed by the others.

This story is only part one of Delusional Conduct so do not expect a lot of answers, in fact you are left with way more questions. The authors drop hints throughout, of the old asylum and I wonder if that will play a bigger part in the remainder of the story. The story has a dark feel to it and I hope that as the story advances it gets darker. As a collaboration, the story flows smoothly and you cannot tell which author writes which chapter. There a few twists in the story and I am not sure how the story will progress. A good start to the series
