Publisher's Summary

A nail-biting, gripping psychological thriller

The perfect family...or the perfect lie?

When a child’s scream pierces the night, Mira does what any good neighbor would do: She calls the police. She wants to make sure that Rosie, the little girl next door, is safe. Opening her front door to the police the next morning, Gemma's picture-perfect family is forced under scrutiny of social services.

As her flawless life begins to crumble around her, Gemma must fight to defend the family she loves and protect her daughter from the terrible secret she's been keeping. But who has Rosie been confiding in when Gemma’s back is turned? And why has she lied to the police?

When Rosie disappears without a trace, Gemma thinks she only has herself to blame. That is, until she finds a little pink diary containing a truth even more devastating than the lie....

If you loved The Couple Next Door and Big Little Lies, you’ll adore this razor-sharp, tense, and utterly engrossing page turner about the people we choose to trust and the secrets we keep behind closed doors.

Can you say the word THERAPY?

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I found myself extremely frustrated about the DENIAL of parents to see that their family may just need some therapy; particularly the child. And maybe some effective discipline???

Which scene was your favorite?

I didn't have one

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No

Any additional comments?

I am shocked that, throughout this entire book, the word therapy was never mentioned, which I find absolutely, unbelievably stupid!!

Wanted to throttle characters

The plot of this one was promising,, but, good grief...mom, daughter, neighbor all needed some therapy - maybe a group discount or something. Rosie had issues before her mother blurted out the truth to her. Frankly, I felt like Gemma was an unfit mother, even if she was not physically abusive. The manner in which she dealt with her daughter's behavior was appalling to me. The son received no attention. And how did the fruitcake neighbor keep a long-term job at a school with her issues? Narration was good.

I had a Love/Hate Relationship With this Book

As a mother of two daughters very close to Rosie’s age parts of this book really resonated with me. At times it even had me close to tears.

However sometimes the story didn’t quite flow and caused me to lose interest. I found it much easier to get into the heart of one character more than the other but maybe that is the authors intention.

Overall it was still enjoyable and as a mother a very thought provoking listen.
