The story follows teen Alex Spurlock as she battles her inner demons about keeping a horrible secret from her family, a secret about something horrible she has done. A secret that landed her father in prison, her family name smeared in controversy and left her mother with no alternative but to pack up the family and move to a new town for a new beginning. As the rest of her family tries to move forward, Alex is thrust into a spiral of guilt and distances herself from her mother, sister, and brother. Life appears to continue, but someone knows Alex’s secret. They use the information to harass and threaten her entire existence. As Alex races to discover who is behind the threats, she finds herself in a deadly situation. It is only then she realizes what “keeping secrets” really means.
Collins delivers a strong debut with multi-dimensional characters and narrative depth. She has a strong grasp of the written language and her writing is easily accessible to both the young adult and adult crowd. The pacing of the story is just right—not too slow and not too quick. Collins uses dialogue to move the story along and conversation between characters is realistic and relatable.
All the elements of a thriller are present, with definite twists and turns along the way, and the storyline holds the suspense throughout the duration. I would definitely buy another book by this author. Perfect for a beach read or to add to your summer reading list!
