So...that is basically how the first couple of chapters plays out. I was immediately hooked. The story continues on with Kate trying to find out why her honor roll student...her perfect daughter...had a reason to commit suicide.
I thought this was a very in depth and intriguing story. It does make me wonder if I know my kids as well as I think I do. Read this book! It is easily a 4 1/5 to 5 star book!
Litigation lawyer and harried single mother Kate Baron is shocked when her daughter's exclusive Brooklyn private school calls to tell her that Amelia—her intelligent, high-achieving fifteen-year-old—has been caught cheating. But when Kate arrives at Grace Hall, she's blindsided by far more devastating news: Amelia is dead. Despondent, she's jumped from the school's roof. At least that's what Grace Hall and the police tell Kate. It's what she believes, too, until she gets the anonymous text: Now, Kate is going to find the truth—no matter where it leads. Sifting through Amelia's e-mails, text messages, and Facebook posts, Kate reconstructs the pieces of her daughter's life and the people in it, uncovering why she was on Grace Hall's roof that day—and how she died.
