A guilty pleasure with a great vocabulary. Undeniably a little over the top; a gratuitous stalker might garner an eye roll, and every character has some kind of improbable physical characteristic. But this is spooky, glance-over-your-shoulder fun. It’ll send chills up your back! Especially enjoyable are the crafty red herrings, which create a guessing game set against Jaffe’s fairy-tale backdrop.
Jane Freeman is about to discover the price of popularity. After a night at the Jersey Shore with her friends, Jane wakes up paralyzed and confused in a hospital bed. The victim of a botched vehicular murder, she only has a sketchy memory of the events leading up to her injury. Jane slowly realizes that there’s no one she can trust — not even her beautiful, popular best friends. (RAZORBILL, Dec., 336 pp., $16.99, ISBN: 9781595143532, HC, 14 & Up)
