Summary: Eighteen-year-old Jill Charron’s senior trip to Italy was supposed to be the adventure of a lifetime. And then the accident happened. Waking up in a hospital room, her leg in a cast, stitches in her face, and a big blank canvas where the last six weeks should be, Jill comes to discover she was involved in a fatal accident in her travels abroad. She was jetted home by her affluent father in order to receive quality care. Care that includes a lawyer. And a press team. Because maybe the accident . . . wasn’t an accident. Wondering not just what happened but what she did, Jill tries to piece together the events of the past six weeks before she loses her thin hold on her once-perfect life.

Jasmine’s Thoughts: This book was really well done. It was fascinating to read Jill’s point of view when she doesn’t actually remember what happened. There was one part of the book that was a little bit predictable, but it didn’t really take from the overall reading of it. The ending was a little bit difficult to read because I didn’t expect it, but I think that only adds to the author’s overall ability to write a mystery/thriller

Jasmine’s Rating: ★★★★ 1/2 stars
