Anna's wild spring break ends abruptly when her best friend Elise is found murdered. Anna is the primary suspect--she narrates from an Aruban jail, awaiting her trial. Anna's flashbacks reveal additional suspects on the island, but also rivalries, romances, and betrayals among Anna, Elise, and their friends. Anna's riveting unreliable narration will keep readers guessing until the final page.

Gr 9 Up—Anna, her boyfriend Tate, her best friend Elise, and other friends are off to celebrate spring break in Aruba. What promises to be an amazing vacation partying and drinking with no parents in sight turns into a nightmare when Elise is brutally murdered. Even more shocking is that Anna finds herself being accused of her murder. Anna is trapped in a foreign jail trying to fight the awful accusations against her. As her friends and the media turn against her, she sets out to find Elise's true killer. What she finds instead are revelations about her friendships, her boyfriend, and the awful truth. Told in alternating chapters that take place before and after the trial, this suspenseful novel is a good choice for teens who like mysteries and thrillers.—Shannon Seglin, San Antonio Public Library
