White Rabbit Reviews

  • Love,

    NO SPOILERS

    I've been meaning to read Caleb Roehrig's first novel, Last Seen Leaving, since the moment I heard about it, but I kept putting it off. That was OBVIOUSLY a mistake because White Rabbit was absolutely incredible, and I now need his first book in my hands asap. When I received an ARC of this one, I couldn't help myself and dived right in.

    White Rabbit reads like a night in Riverdale, but if it were following Kevin and Moose. I'm a huge fan of slasher films, especially ones where you're

    Certain to be on all those "Best YA Books of 2018" lists, Roehrig's WHITE RABBIT is a book that shocks, stuns, and awes. Unlike many mysteries, the focus of WR is more of a "whodidntdoit" than a "whodunit." Rufus, our main character, is trying to prove that his half-sister did not kill the guy whose dead body she was next to while covered in blood and holding a knife. You know, a typical day in the life of a Roehrig character. Oh, and tagging along for the ride? Rufus' ex-boyfriend, Sebastian.

    A spiritual follow-up to Roehrig's debut mystery LAST SEEN LEAVING, WHITE RABBIT finds its main character - a young, heartbroken, rage-prone gay named Rufus - neck deep in a murder story that's intense and brutal in all the right places. Taking place in a single night following a Fourth of July party, WHITE RABBIT drags its tireless protagonist through one dangerous situation after another, whether its interrogating the spoiled rich kid suspects or worrying about his mother losing their house or ...more

    4.5 STARS

    When Rufus’s half-sister April calls for his help, he doesn’t expect his ex Sebastian to offer a ride. Rufus REALLY doesn’t expect to find April passed out with a knife in her hand, next to her dead boyfriend. She swears she’s innocent and needs Rufus’s help to find the real killer. What could possibly go wrong?

    White Rabbit is going to be the YA thriller of 2018. I'm calling it now. This murder mystery kept me on the very edge of my seat the entire time I read the book, and even up until the very end, I still had no idea who the killer was or how the book would conclude. A thriller in

    Mysteries can be really interesting. I'm no stranger to watching them all over Netflix, Hulu, and whatever other streaming site I've got access to, not to mention gobbling up books. That's why I wanted to read White Rabbit: it sounded like a twisty maze of a murder mystery that would grip me from page one. 

    Oh boy. It was a disappointment and I'm really sore about that. Reading the whole of the book turn

    Dating Sebastian Williams was both the best and worst thing that ever happened to me. In a lot of ways, being with him made me feel as if maybe I’d never really been alive at all before. I was like a violin— an object that hasn’t much purpose until someone touches it, fills it with resonance, draws things from it that it can never produce on its own. Sebastian had been the one to draw music from me, and it’s why the end was so bad; before him, I’d never actually realized how painful the silence was.


    Sebastian contributed to the toxicity in a few ways. While he and Rufus were dating, he would still be flirting with girls, even knowing that it bothered his boyfriend.

    It bothered me that Sebastian still flirted openly with girls, even right in front of me, because I knew he still actually liked girls; but I also knew why he felt the need to do it, and I believed all the things he said to me in private— how special I was, how happy I made him, how good he felt when we were together— and so I plastered over my jealousies and let myself fall into him.


    I understand why he felt the need to keep their relationship private, but knowing how Rufus felt and still doing things like this felt like it contributed to bad stereotypes about bisexual characters. Sebastian isn't identified as strictly bisexual, though he is coded that way, and these stereotype hints don't help. It's distasteful on its own and then Rufus letting him get away with it just adds a whole other level of nose wrinkling frustration.

    Sebastian then ends their relationship by ghosting Rufus. He never recognizes or stands up for Rufus when his friends bullied him. He excuses what the bullies do, related to Rufus or not, as being "little kids" back then or just "kids". Age doesn't excuse the stuff they did because they were all old enough to know better by this point.

    “You think maybe I’m in on it.” I respond to the charge with silence, and he states gruffly, “I wouldn’t do something like that, Rufe. Not to you. You know I wouldn’t.” “I don’t know what you’d do,” I shoot back,


    Even if they weren't dating, it would have been the decent thing to do. Rufus confronts him about it at one point and Sebastian brushes it off as just something that they do and it doesn't mean anything. These two didn't seem healthy for each other and their ending up a couple didn't sit right. The trust issues that were around before the start and that didn't have the time to get properly worked on were really serious, as evidenced by the quote above when, after Rufus gets the call from April and thinks it's an ambush that Sebastian could be in on. You don't go from something like that to what they do on the night in question and have it be a healthy relationship without a heavy duty dose of therapy or something.

    Moving on to Rufus and his half-sister April: whatever he did for her during the course of the book, I cannot believe that he would have so easily let her basically drift into his friend group at the end. Considering the torture that she put him through their entire lives, that her family put him through, it didn't make any sense. It felt like he was letting those things go and that hurt.

    Rounding the corner, I walked straight into a trap. April stood against the wall, her blue eyes wide and solemn, and she watched with silent fascination as our older brother Hayden and two of his friends spent the next four minutes beating me into a quivering, bloody pulp at her feet.


    There were also a few smaller things that bugged me that weren't really important to the overall story line, but were off just enough that my mind kept coming back, like a loose thread. For example, calling a manga volume by it's subtitle and then switching to the series title without explanation (only fans of the series would realize what had happened) or when Lia, one of the suspects in the murder, says she used prescription cold medicine to dose someone, but did so at a house where she shouldn't have had access to such a product (where did she even get it??).

    It was really hard to get through the book because I realized around 30% that I didn't care about anyone. I was semi-curious to find out who the murderer was, so I forced myself to finish, but there was no fun, no enjoyment.

    This book was a wild fucking ride. Nothing stops happening. It's extremely fast paced from start to finish. I honestly didn't expect the murderer to be who it was and throughout this book I was super unsure cause it could've been anyone. I even felt myself getting scared or nervous while reading. I didn't care too much about the romance althoughhh, I kind of wish Sebastian had a better/ more interesting reason as to why he dumped Rufus. Also, I didn't like all the flashbacks in the beginning.

    🦊 My Thoughts

    White Rabbit was an unexpectedly fun read for me. I haven’t read the author’s previous book and I don’t think I’ve ever read a thriller before, so I had no idea what to expect going into this. But I was not disappointed! I feel like many people are apprehensive of reading it, maybe because of the genre, but I recommend everyone to give this one a chance because it might blow you away.
