Erin Blake has one of those names. A name that, like Natalee Holloway or Elizabeth Smart, is inextricably linked to a grisly crime. As a toddler, Erin survived for three days alongside the corpse of her murdered mother, and the case - which remains unsolved - fascinated a nation. Her father's identity unknown, Erin was taken in by her mother's best friend and has become a relatively normal teen in spite of the looming questions about her past.

Interesting story that kept my attention and the narrator was very good. Figuring out who did it was predictable but the why was a little more difficult. All and all pretty decent book

This book was totally pointless. It was so predictable and there was really no suspense just a boring story telling the same story over and over again. I really thought there was going to be more to it.

Was bored pretty much the whole way. The characters were not very likeable and figured it out half way thru the book. Forced myself to finish in hopes I was wrong or more to it. Nope
