Reviews

"Busby has skillfully constructed a plot with enough suspenseful twists to keep readers on their toes from start to finish. An unusual, captivating mystery." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Busby's tense mystery alternates between Nico and Sarah's points of view, using the tactic of an unreliable narrator to great effect while exploring how tragedy can alter every detail of a family's existence. A final twist leads to a surprising and utterly satisfying conclusion." -- Publishers Weekly

"With compelling, memorable storytelling, Busby captures the complicated and often fraught relationship between siblings, especially in the aftermath of family trauma. Eerie and evocative, this thriller will likely inspire return visits to pick up on previously missed clues, and plenty of plot twists will keep readers guessing. -- Booklist

"Busby tackles a disturbing theme with aplomb, deftly leaving the reader both disquieted and superbly satisfied. This is perfect for mystery lovers and sophisticated readers who will love a double a twist within a twist." -- Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

"Readers who enjoy the mystery of how...a bait and switch might play out won't be disappointed." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
