Staff Reviews

Whoa, y'all. Mary Kubica always has awesome twisty endings but when i finished this one, I actually said aloud "what the...". Jessie and Eden share narration in this book about mothers and daughters, and how far they will go out of love for each other.  I don't want to say too much and give anything away, so I'll just say that if you like Kubica, Gillan Flynn, Paula Hawkins and their ilk, you will love this book.

— From Andi


"A twisty, captivating, edge-of-your-seat read." --Megan Miranda, bestselling author of All the Missing Girls

"Creepy and oh so clever " --Alice Feeney, bestselling author of Sometimes I Lie

A woman is forced to question her own identity in this riveting and emotionally charged thriller by the blockbuster bestselling author of The Good Girl, Mary Kubica

Jessie Sloane is on the path to rebuilding her life after years of caring for her ailing mother. She rents a new apartment and applies for college. But when the college informs her that her social security number has raised a red flag, Jessie discovers a shocking detail that causes her to doubt everything she's ever known.

Finding herself suddenly at the center of a bizarre mystery, Jessie tumbles down a rabbit hole, which is only exacerbated by grief and a relentless lack of sleep. As days pass and the insomnia worsens, it plays with Jessie's mind. Her judgment is blurred, her thoughts are hampered by fatigue. Jessie begins to see things until she can no longer tell the difference between what's real and what she's only imagined.

Meanwhile, twenty years earlier and two hundred and fifty miles away, another woman's split-second decision may hold the key to Jessie's secret past. Has Jessie's whole life been a lie or have her delusions gotten the best of her?
