"In this high-tension domestic drama, nothing is as it seems. Don’t look away, you won’t want to miss a thing!” —J.T. Ellison, USA TODAY bestselling author of Her Dark Lies
"Garza establishes herself once again as a master of domestic suspense . . . a pitch-perfect thriller.” —Mindy Mejia, bestselling author of Everything You Want Me To Be
From the author of When I Was You comes a spine-tingling new thriller about a mother’s worst nightmare come true, when her teenage daughter goes to a sleepover and doesn’t come back.
Whitney had some misgivings when she dropped her increasingly moody teenage daughter, Amelia, off at Lauren’s house. She’d never met the parents, and usually she’d go in, but Amelia clearly wasn’t going to let something so humiliating happen, so instead Whitney waved to her daughter before pulling away from the little house with the roses in front.
But when she goes back the next day, an elderly couple answers the door—Amelia and Lauren aren’t there, and this couple swears they never were, that she’s at the wrong house. As Whitney searches for Amelia, she uncovers a trail of lies her daughter has told her—from the Finsta account to rumors of a secret relationship. Does she really even know this girl she’s raised? And Amelia’s not the only one with secrets. Could Whitney’s own demons have something to do with her daughter’s disappearance, and can Whitney find her before it’s too late?
At the start of this stellar psychological thriller from Garza (When I Was You), divorc e Whitney drops off her 16-year-old daughter, Amelia, for a sleepover in front of the house of Amelia's friend Lauren. Whitney was hoping to walk Amelia to the door and introduce herself to Lauren's mother, but the moody, distant Amelia wouldn't let her. The next morning, when Whitney arrives to pick up Amelia, the elderly couple who answer the door insist there's no teenager inside and no teenager lives with them. Whitney's subsequent search for Amelia raises issues from Whitney's past, in particular the reasons for her divorce, and she discovers her new boyfriend is not the man she thinks he is. Meanwhile, an initially unidentified teenage girl writes in her diary about a friend named Millie, with whom the girl has an obsessive relationship and who sets her on a path she wishes she hadn't taken. The tension builds as the perfectly orchestrated story lines converge in a truly surprising ending. This is impossible to put down.
