In this haunting coming-of-age novel, quirky loner Evie is in the wrong place at the wrong time when her sometime friend and total crush Jonah discovers a body in the woods-a body that turns out to be that of her childhood playmate, Elizabeth 'Zabet' McCabe. At the funeral, a fateful lie leads Evie into a complicated relationship with Zabeth's father and her best friend, Hadley. Before she even realizes what is happening, Evie is on the hunt for a killer, spinning more lies along the way and putting herself in serious danger. There are no easy answers in Katie Williams' debut literary thriller-only a fresh, authentic voice that is both evocative and memorable.
