About the book:

Elizabeth Valchar-pretty, popular, and perfect-wakes up the morning after her eighteenth birthday party on her family's yacht, where she'd been celebrating with her six closest friends. A persistent thumping noise has roused her. When she goes to investigate, what she finds will change everything she thought she knew about her life, her friends, and everything in between. As Liz begins to unravel the circumstances surrounding her birthday night, she will find that no one around her, least of all Liz herself, was perfect-or innocent. Critically acclaimed author Jessica Warman brings readers along on a roller-coaster ride of a mystery, one that is also a heartbreaking character study, a touching romance, and ultimately a hopeful tale of redemption, love, and letting go.

Reviews Plate

Jessica Warman offers a story of tragedy and eternal peace. The story of this young girl’s death, and the eventual acceptance is a disheartening tale that will capture readers attention. While the story was a bit long for my taste; it eventually falls into a peaceful ending that will give readers closure. The unraveling of the Elizabeth’s life is eye opening experience of what young adults content with in this day in age. Recommended for those you enjoy novels such as If I Stay.
