Publisher's Summary

Do you really want to know what’s going on inside your daughter’s head? Single mother Kate Baron is in the meeting of her career when she is interrupted by a telephone call. Her daughter Amelia has just been suspended from her exclusive school. When Kate eventually arrives an hour later, she hears the news that no mother ever wants to hear.
A grieving Kate can't accept that her daughter would kill herself. But she soon discovers she didn't know Amelia quite as well as she thought. Then Kate receives an anonymous text saying simply: Amelia didn’t jump. And so begins an investigation which takes her deep into Amelia's private world, into her journals, her email account and into the mind of a troubled young girl.


What the Critics Say

"Like Gone Girl, this seamlessly marries a crime story with a relationship drama. And like Gone Girl it should be hailed as one of the best books of the year." (Entertainment weekly)
"A very clever, menacing novel that will make you rightly wary of damaged teenage girls." (Daily Mail)

do you know your child?

Any additional comments?

kate thought she knew Amelia, they could talk about anything, until amelila committed suicide. kate couldn't understand why Amelia could do such a thing and she not know the reason why. she desperately needs to know the reason why.
the story is told in the first person by kate and Amelia and goes back and forth in time.
both of these characters were well written to the point you felt sorry for them both. it is an emotionally charged book where secrets are revealed at the end.
an enjoyable listen.
