This is a very dark and disturbing book that deals with children murdering a classmate. Charlotte, the female protagonist, has absolutely no memory of the crime and just wants a chance to start over, to rebuild her life without Sean, her partner in the crime. She has frequent visits to her therapist, Dr. Isherwood, and there is much mystery about this woman who takes phone calls in the middle of a therapy session. This is psychological suspense that has a slow start and a lot of flashbacks in the lives of Charlotte and Sean. The flashbacks are necessary to the story, but they do slow down the current action and are somewhat frustrating at times. The plot is interesting and drew me into the story of Charlotte and Sean, making me want to find out the truth about what really happened. Readers of psychological suspense will enjoy this story and will find the conclusion satisfactory.
