Three little girls set off to school one sunny May morning. Within an hour, one of them is dead. Fifteen years later, Kitty lives in an institution. She can't speak and has no memory of the accident that put her there, or her life before it. Nearby, Alison, a local artisan, struggles to make ends meet and to forget her past. When a job opens up in a prison as an art teacher, she takes it. Soon, though, she starts to receive alarming notes - followed by a frightening prisoner-on-prisoner assault while her back is turned.

Characters are whiny and unlikable. Plot is annoyingly muddled for effect of revealing secrets that are ridiculous. Not good.

Some places seem too beautiful to be touched by horror. Summit Lake, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, is that kind of place, with charming stilt houses dotted along the pristine water. But two weeks ago, Becca Eckersley, a first-year law student, was brutally murdered in one of those houses. The daughter of a powerful attorney, Becca was hard-working, accomplished, and ambitious. Now, while the town reels with grief and shocked residents gather to share their theories, the police are baffled.

A couple of ok twists but the narrator ruins it. I don’t really know if I disliked the book so much or if it was because of her.
