Representation: one POV (not main) is someone exploring their lesbian identity, lesbian love interest for that POV (not main)

Blythe and her friends—Gabrielle, and brother and sister Tucker and Tanya—have always been a tight friend group, attending a local high school and falling in and out of love with each other. But an act of violence has caused a rift between Blythe and Tucker . . . and unexpected bursts of aggression and disturbing nightmares have started to become more frequent in their lives.

The strange happenings culminate in a shocking event at school: Gabrielle is found covered in blood in front of their deceased principal, with no memory of what happened.

Cracks in their friendship, as well as in their own memories, start appearing, threatening to expose long-forgotten secrets which could change the group’s lives forever. How can Blythe and her friends trust each other when they can’t even trust their own memories?

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book and chose to review it. This in no way impacts my opinion.

Content Warningdeath, fire, depictions of death, suicide attempt, suicidal ideation, involuntary hospitalization, death of a loved one, police manipulation, anxiety attacks, religious persecution, mentions of pedophilia.

I went into this thinking it was going to be a murder mystery and we had to solve whodunnit but it was so much more than that! A combination of paranoia, determining what is real and not real, and learning the truth which was so interesting. It kept me guessing until the very end and I couldn't read fast enough.

I thought there were a lot of really good elements in here but I wasn't a huge fan of the few chapters from another POV that wasn't Blythe's. They didn't feel natural and ended up feeling more like filler so that we could "get the truth." However, we were figuring out the truth along the way and it kinda detracted from that for me.

Otherwise I thought it was well paced, well written, and had such amazing plot devices worked in that if I talked about, it would spoil the book for you. I just thought it was so well done and the characters were well developed. I liked mixing in the typical teenage angst with this large, looming plot because it felt so realistic.

I highly recommend!
