Rachael (classycupcakezz) | 6113 comments Libby Day was just seven years old when her evidence put her fifteen-year-old brother behind bars.

Since then, she has been drifting. But when she is contacted by a group who are convinced of Ben's innocence, Libby starts to ask questions she never dared to before. Was the voice she heard her borther's? Ben was a misfit in their small town, but was he capable of murder? Are there secrets to uncover at the family farm or is Libby deluding herself because she wants her brother back?

She begins to realise that everyone in her family had something to hide that day... especially Ben. Now, twenty-four years later, the truth is going to be even harder to find.

Who did massacre the Day family?

Rachael (classycupcakezz) | 6113 comments I don't really like Libby... She acts like she's entitled to sympathy and monetary contributions because of what she went though over 20 years ago!

Abby | 5454 comments I'm joining in. Will start later today.


Victoria Scott | 2393 comments I'll join this! I'm probably not going to start on the 4th, because I have another buddy read then, but I shouldn't be too late starting :)


Manveer (manveerssj4) I will probably start just before sleeping tonight :)


Manveer (manveerssj4) I have started! Read a few pages.

Well, Libby is a really interesting character, and quite realistic too.


Manveer (manveerssj4) I'm in and starting to build some theories. Did anyone else start?

I'm not usually one to form theories. I just like to be in the moment in books, on the same page as the characters.

Not theories as such. Just various possibilities of what could be. I can't help that but my brain does that on its own. Then I look at the facts and scrap them one by one.

Exactly what I was thinking :P
Interesting character And boy, what a jealous hypocrite. Can't stand other girls getting the same privileges.

40% Done! Won't take me long to finish, I think.


Manveer (manveerssj4) 60%

Manveer (manveerssj4) I know this was supposed to be a buddy read and all, but I'm finished already. Not giving out any spoilers. Finish up fast so we can talk :)

I'll still be here to discuss with you. :)

For some reason it's taking me a while to read, it's disturbing so far but good!

Amy | 2561 comments I'm so tempted to read your 'finished' spoilers by the way. The not knowing is killing me.
