This book was well written and had my attention until the last couple pages. The subject matter is just not for me, I don’t want to put out any spoilers because it’s a big part of the book and explains a lot. Even though it was very realistic and I felt for Julia, she and her twin had more problems than their parents ever realized. Their psychologist was a creep, I didn’t really like him but I guess he served his purpose.
Julia’s family moves her to a new town after her twin brother kills 8 other students in their school and shoots himself in the head. They figured a new start, new name and new life will make things better.....they were so wrong. When a secret her parents have been keeping from her comes to light, Julia does damage control and the things that will be brought to your attention will make you question everything you read and thought you knew.
22 minutes separate Julia Vann’s before and after.
Before: Julia had a twin brother, a boyfriend, and a best friend.
After: She has a new identity, a new hometown, and memories of those twenty-two minutes that refuse to come into focus. At least, that’s what she tells the police.
Now that she’s Lucy Black, her fresh start has attracted the attention of one of the hottest guys in school. And someone much more dangerous. She thought her brother’s crimes were behind her. But now she’s being forced to confront the dark secrets she thought were safely left behind. How far will Julia go to keep her slate clean?
One thing is clear: The damage done can never be erased. It’s only just beginning. . . .
In this deliciously twisted contemporary thriller, family can be a real killer. For fans of We Were Liars and readers who love unique multiple perspectives that leave clues like breadcrumbs until they reach the stunning conclusion.
