How far would you go to right a wrong?
Nine months ago, Tess’s five-year-old daughter was killed in a car accident. The driver, Brady Becker, was sentenced to two years in prison. It didn’t make Tess’s pain go away.
Brady also has a daughter: A twelve-year-old named Eve who walks to Chandler Middle School every day. Tess knows this because she’s been watching Eve for the last three weeks. It isn’t fair that Brady’s daughter gets to live, while Tess’s daughter does not.
When Eve goes missing, all eyes turn to Tess, who doesn’t have an alibi. But Tess isn’t guilty.
Or so she believes.
I haven’t read any of Erik’s books before so didn’t know what to expect but I really enjoyed this one and look forward to reading his other books now. I found the plot very engaging and also unpredictable, you never really knew as a reader where you were going to be taken next. Tess’s young daughter dies in a car accident, the driver has a young daughter too that Tessa has been watching for a few weeks, why? because it is not fair that her daughter died and the driver that killed her daughter, his daughter gets to live. When his daughter goes missing everyone points the finger at Tess, but was it her? I could never imagine how I would feel in Tess’s situation, it must be so hard for her, to write about experiencing a loss must be hard but it is written incredibly well with great descriptive writing. I liked how the story is set out with turns that I was never expecting. The ending was brilliant and well thought out. I now can’t wait to read more of Erik’s books.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
