Staff Reviews

Cop shows have failed me.

I was certain I knew who the “bad guy” was from the second the book asks you to guess. I was completely wrong, but the choice makes sense. Miranda keeps you guessing and wondering about not only present circumstances, but also events in the past that Mallory can’t remember clearly. It is a very intense look at how tragedy can change people’s lives, no matter what the tragedy may be.

--Rachel – Anderson’s Bookshop Naperville


Mallory killed her boyfriend, Brian. She can't remember the details of that night but everyone knows it was self-defense, so she isn't charged. But Mallory still feels Brian's presence in her life. Is it all in her head? Or is it something more? In desperate need of a fresh start, Mallory is sent to Monroe, a fancy prep school where no one knows her . . . or anything about her past.But the feeling follows her, as do her secrets. Then, one of her new classmates turns up dead. As suspicion falls on Mallory, she must find a way to remember the details of both deadly nights so she can prove her innocence-to herself and others.

In another riveting tale of life and death, Megan Miranda's masterful storytelling brings readers along for a ride to the edge of sanity and back again.
