"A gripping and sometimes downright scary look at friendship and manipulation." —Kirkus Reviews

“[A] searing portrayal of power, privilege, and betrayal in the hills above Los Angeles." —Publishers Weekly

"[Readers] will eagerly anticipate the accident’s entire truth revealed, especially through its surprising and gratifying ending." —VOYA
