Thirteen-year-old Stacy is sunbathing in the backyard when she hears a strange noise from inside the house. Turning to look, she sees a man with a gun burst through the door; then everything goes black. She wakes up in a hospital bed to learn that she has spent the last four years in a catatonic state. Suddenly 17, she finds herself struggling to adjust and fighting to remember what happened to her. She is the only witness to the shooting that injured her and killed her mother.
Her memory is hazy, but slowly more details of that awful day come back. She knows that it was someone familiar to her, but she can’t quite see his face yet. Can Stacy remember in time to keep him from finishing what he started?
Young adult mystery lovers will be enthralled by the nonstop suspense and believable characters of The Other Side of Dark. Narrator Christina Moore’s reading builds the tension to a fever pitch as Stacy races against time to stop a killer.

This book is well written for its time for a younger audience. We listened to it as a family and found it entertaining and looked forward to continuing.
