Victoria is content with her life now that she has transferred to St. Ann’s, a private school forty-five minutes away from Duchess, where she lives. She does well enough in school, doesn’t attract attention, and is happily dating the boy-next-door, Andrew. Everyone leaves her alone and she couldn’t be happier. Life is good. But who knew how much better it could get? When Z arrives, she’s swept away. He shows her a new life, one in which she might fall hard in love, go out on dates on Friday nights, and maybe, just maybe, get a part in the school play. When her life looks like it might revert back to being just enough, Vic is not ready to let go, and the cost is great.
The story is told by Victoria to Andrew, as though recorded on her phone. Short clips and interviews precede each chapter that detail the mysterious police investigation. Both conclude with a bang, pulling together questions that weren’t even asked in a final confrontation. Readers who enjoyed Need by Joelle Charbonneau or The Killer in Me by Margot Harrison will find this horrific mystery perfectly explosive–this one will require a late night.
