Publisher Description

A thrilling debut, reminiscent of new fan favorites like One of Us Is Lying and the beloved classics by Agatha Christie, that will leave readers guessing until the explosive ending.

“Welcome to dinner, and again, congratulations on being selected. Now you must do the selecting.”

What do the queen bee, star athlete, valedictorian, stoner, loner, and music geek all have in common? They were all invited to a scholarship dinner, only to discover it’s a trap. Someone has locked them into a room with a bomb, a syringe filled with poison, and a note saying they have an hour to pick someone to kill...or else everyone dies.

Amber Prescott is determined to get her classmates and herself out of the room alive, but that might be easier said than done. No one knows how they’re all connected or who would want them dead.

As they retrace the events over the past year that might have triggered their captor’s ultimatum, it becomes clear that everyone is hiding something.

And with the clock ticking down, confusion turns into fear, and fear morphs into panic as they race to answer the biggest question: Who will they choose to die?

Absolutely FABULOUS! A 2020 favorite!

WHAT A FREAKIN GREAT, WELL WRITTEN YA MYSTERY/SUSPENSE!!!

I enjoyed this so much!!! It was perfectly balanced, as far as going back and forth from the present to the past. It showed how awful bullying is and what it does to people. (There is mention of a past suicide. If that’s a trigger, be aware.) The mystery was hard to figure out, but towards the end I admit that I figured it out. I kept guessing all kinds of things. Haha! I love a well written mystery, it’s a lot of fun to try to figure things out. There aren’t a lot of good ones in the YA genre, but I think this is fabulous!!!
