Miranda’s second YA effort shares much with her first, Fracture. The relatable female protagonists and the compelling psychological dramas are welcome commonalities. Miranda examines the depths of the human brain and the fallibility of memory in this gripping psychological thriller that will have readers questioning what’s really happening, and what’s been imagined all along.
Mallory can’t remember much about the night she killed her boyfriend Brian, though the case has been ruled an act of self-defense. There’s a lot she doesn’t know — and certainly a lot of doubt from the members of her small community — especially Brian’s family. To escape Brian’s mentally disintegrating mother and threatening friends, Mallory ships out to Monroe Academy. But can she truly avoid her past? (WALKER, Feb., 272 pp., $17.99, ISBN: 9780802723109, HC, 14 & Up)
