I read this when I was a young teen, and I recently reread it as an adult.

The heavy-handed foreshadowing, the unlikeable main characters, and the just downright silly, unbelievable situations just made me shake my head now.

Everything reminds Vicki of the accident. At breakfast, her family only eats blood-like foods, from tomato juice to clots of raspberry jam. At dinner they eat rare roast beef. You’d think they’d show a little more sensitivity! Vicki has night terrors; she hears laughter nearby without a source; someone left “hundreds of roaches” in her high-tops and “stumps of feet in [her] red shoes.” WHAT IF THE ACCIDENT WASN’T AN ACCIDENT?

I read this years ago when I was middle school age. I remember liking it.

Waaaaay too short to have much depth or impact, but still a decent YA mystery! You could probably read this in an hour or less!
