Mallory’s life is falling apart. Her boyfriend was stabbed. He bled to death in her kitchen. Mallory was the one who stabbed him. But she can’t remember what happened that night. She only remembers the fear . . .

When Mallory’s parents send her away to a boarding school, she thinks she can escape the gossip and the threats. But someone, or something, has followed her. There’s the hand that touches her shoulder when she’s drifting off to sleep. A voice whispering her name. And everyone knows what happened. So when a pupil is found dead, Mallory’s name is on their lips. Her past can be forgotten but it’s never gone. Can Mallory live with that?


Goodreads Summary

I’m in a suspenseful/thriller mood lately and when I saw a friend add this to their list, I had to go investigate. It sounds like a mix of all sorts of things I like. Boarding schools? Spooky amnesia? Mysterious deaths? Yep, I’m there. Since it isn’t blisteringly hot out anymore, 2013 doesn’t seem quite so far away anymore.
