Publisher's Summary

From the number-one New York Times best-selling author of Orphan Train comes a novel about friendship and the memories that haunt us.

On the night of her high school graduation, Kathryn Campbell sits around a bonfire with her four closest friends, including the beautiful but erratic Jennifer. "I'll be fine," Jennifer says as she walks away from the dying embers and toward the darkness of the woods. She never comes back.

Ten years later Kathryn has tried to build a life for herself, with a marriage and a career as a journalist, but she still feels the conspicuous void of Jennifer's disappearance. When her divorce sends her reeling back to the Maine town where she grew up, she finds herself plunged into a sea of memories. With nothing left to lose, she is determined to answer one simple question: What happened to Jennifer Pelletier?

Promising beginning, fizzled out at the end

I was so excited about this book since Orphan Train is one of my all time favorites. I was hooked at the beginning, but by the end I just wanted it to be over so I could know what happened and move on to another great read. I didn't find any of the characters lovable and the ending was predictable.

Not enough suspense

It seemed too obvious who was responsible for Jennifer's death from the beginning. Though you didn't know the name, the character reference was enough.
