Seventeen-year-old Christa Pierce has the perfect life. She's rich, pretty, a slam dunk for valedictorian, and a star of the high school cross-country team. To the kids at school, she has everything. She is everything.
But it's a lie.
The pretty face everyone sees is the mask her father forces her to wear. To hide family secrets that shine like bruises. To disguise what his cruelty stole from her, including the mother she never knew. It's a face that fools everyone, even the man who keeps her in line with the back of his hand.
Now, Christa's done with being afraid. She's desperate to break free from the prison of her "perfect" life - and destroy her father. But then friends become pawns. Right and wrong gets blurred. Mind games play out, dark and twisted. Revenge takes a turn for the deadly.

Completely predictable whodunnit. Waited for any kind of psychological thrill, never had one because the entire story was so predictable. Would not even waste 1.95 if it were the Daily Deal.
