Maria Weston wants to be friends. But Maria Weston is dead. Isn't she?

1989. When Louise first notices the new girl who has mysteriously transferred late into their senior year, Maria seems to be everything the girls Louise hangs out with aren't. Authentic. Funny. Brash. Within just a few days, Maria and Louise are on their way to becoming fast friends.

2016. Louise receives a heart-stopping email: Maria Weston wants to be friends on Facebook. Long-buried memories quickly rise to the surface: those first days of their budding friendship; cruel decisions made and dark secrets kept; the night that would change all their lives forever.

Louise has always known that if the truth ever came out, she could stand to lose everything. Her job. Her son. Her freedom. Maria's sudden reappearance threatens it all, and forces Louise to reconnect with everyone she'd severed ties with to escape the past. But as she tries to piece together exactly what happened that night, Louise discovers there's more to the story than she ever knew. To keep her secret, Louise must first uncover the whole truth, before what's known to Maria--or whoever's pretending to be her--is known to all.

Karen Barber | 10082 comments Opening chapters introduce Louise in the present. Her shock at getting a friend request from someone she thinks is dead is understandable. Their first meeting at school seems quite intense.

Karen Barber | 10082 comments Up to ch7. How can so many rumours have circulated when Maria says nothing? Hotbed of insecurity.

Karen Barber | 10082 comments Up to ch12. Not quite sure how this will pan out.

Karen Barber | 10082 comments Up to ch24. It’s picked up a little here and the reunion was a definite set-up.

Karen Barber | 10082 comments Up to ch35. Definitely an odd scenario. Wonder if Louise will piece it together before it’s too late.

Karen Barber | 10082 comments Finished. Review on home page. Ultimately frustrating.
