It was the perfect trip…until it wasn’t.

Eighteen-year-old Jill Charron wakes up in a hospital room, leg in a cast, stitches in her face and a big blank canvas where the last six weeks should be. She discovers she was involved in a fatal car accident while on a school trip in Italy. A trip she doesn’t even remember taking. She was jetted home by her affluent father in order to receive quality care. Care that includes a lawyer. And a press team. Because maybe the accident…wasn’t an accident.

As the accident makes national headlines, Jill finds herself at the center of a murder investigation. It doesn’t help that the media is portraying her as a sociopath who killed her bubbly best friend, Simone, in a jealous rage. With the evidence mounting against her, there’s only one thing Jill knows for sure: She would never hurt Simone. But what really happened? Questioning who she can trust and what she’s capable of, Jill desperately tries to piece together the events of the past six weeks before she loses her thin hold on her once-perfect life.

***Jaime – #NerdGirlJay’s  Review***
Taking a school enrichment trip to Italy with her best friend, Simone, doesn’t turn out how Jill thought it would. Instead, she wakes up in the hospital after a car accident with no memory of the accident, the trip or anything in between. The last six weeks of her life is gone. What’s even worse, the Italian police don’t believe the accident was an accident. They think Jill actually murdered her best friend, over an Italian man. But it’s much more complicated, and chilling, than that.

Loved this book! A chilling, suspenseful read-it kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next. Although the back story has to do with Jill’s memory loss, there isn’t a bunch of medical jargon to muck it all up.

This story really hits on a lot of topics that teenagers deal with, peer pressure, bullying, self esteem issues. It shows what can happen when someone is pushed to the limits.
