Eighteen months ago, with Jena lying unconscious in the hospital, the truth about what happened to her that night was all that Sam cared about. But some facts are so shocking that the only way to cope with them is to blank them out.
Now Jena is back in the world and recovering her life, but Sam is dying on an anorexia ward. As time starts to run out for her wasted body, Sam’s therapist tries a radical and dangerous approach: he brings to life the past she is dying to escape with a box of old photographs. If Sam is brave enough to face what she has locked away, can she trust her own memories?
As a reader, I was transfixed by this dark and suspenseful tale of two sisters and the secrets and lies at the heart of their world. Just like Sam, I longed to know the truth—and when it came, as horrifying as it was, I could not look away.
