This book focuses on two characters, Pippa and Ravi, and follows their journey of investigating the truth of Andie Bell’s disappearance and Sal Singh’s death five years before the present. Sal, Ravi’s brother, was convicted of Andie’s murder before he died. Ravi never believed that his brother was capable of doing this, so he worked with Pippa to prove Sal’s innocence. 

I usually find myself struggling to remain engaged while reading books. This was not the case while reading this one. I love a good mystery/thriller book, and while with some books it is easier to guess who the villain is, this book left me with a jaw-dropped expression. The ending was completely unexpected. Even before the killer was revealed, Holly Jackson kept me second-guessing myself after each chapter, trying to figure out who was the mastermind. There were so many plot twists and interesting details revealed throughout the book which kept me on edge and desperate to find out the killer. I also liked how this book addressed certain problems we find in society today, such as substance abuse and bullying. I appreciated the fact that the entire book didn’t revolve around these issues, but that they were incorporated into the storyline. Overall, this book is definitely one of my favorites and I can’t wait to read the rest of the trilogy. 

I give this book a 5/5.
