Rated 5 stars ***** 2014. Hyperion (Disney Book Group). 341 pp.
Sophie was always in constant pain after a horrible car accident when she was just 14 years old. Oxy pills were her only relief as she learned to walk again, and even her best friend, neighbor and soul mate Mina couldn’t completely take away the pain. After spending the next 3 years addicted to Oxy, Mina intervenes and saves her from the death trap of drug addiction into which she was spiraling.
Now 17, Sophie is the prime suspect in a murder investigation because of a supposed drug deal gone badly. Mina is dead, but no one will believe that she has been clean for 6 months and didn’t have anything to do with buying drugs or killing her best friend. After being locked up in rehab for 3 months, Sophie has one thought in mind: revenge. She will find out who killed Mina and get justice. Unfortunately the murderer knows she’s looking, and will stop at nothing to remain hidden – even if it means murdering again.
This tension filled mystery, told through flashbacks, will keep readers eagerly turning pages to find out whodunit.
Recommended for ages 14 and older.
