Reviews

Gr 9 Up-This rich, psychological mystery opens with 17-year-old Neily Monroe standing on the bridge where, a year earlier, he found Carly Ribelli's body. Having gone from being her best friend to her boyfriend to a piece of detritus she left in her wake, it's no surprise that he is having trouble "getting over" Carly's murder. Nonetheless, he is determined to somehow make it through high school and move on. Then the school year starts and Neily is approached by Carly's cousin, Audrey. Since her father was convicted of the murder, Neily is surprised that she would come back to school. As it turns out, she is there to find out who really murdered Carly, and she is determined to have his help. The narrative alternates between the teens' perspectives, though Neily's voice-sarcastic and insightful-is the stronger of the two. The portrayal of the cliquey private high school is familiar but not cliched. A satisfying story from a promising new author.-Eliza Langhans, Hatfield Public Library, MA Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

Publishers Weekly, December 14, 2009:
"It's a slow-building, slow-burning mystery--Jarzab is as interested in probing Neily and Audrey's emotional states and the ramifications of Carly's murder as she is in solving it--but the author's confident, literary prose makes for a tense and immersive thriller."

Booklist, October 15, 2009:
