Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

New York Times bestselling author Lauren Myracle offers a spine-tingling, unforgettable story of friendship gone very, very wrong.

 

Lauren Myracle brings her keen understanding of teen dynamics to a hypnotic horror story of twisted friendship.

 

When Blisss hippie parents leave the commune and dump her at the home of her aloof grandmother in a tony Atlanta neighborhood, its like being set down on an alien planet. The only guide naive Bliss has to her new environment is what shes seen on The Andy Griffith Show. But Mayberry is poor preparation for Crestview Academy, an elite school where the tensions of the present and the dark secrets of the past threaten to simmer into violence. Openhearted Bliss desperately wants new friends, making her the perfect prey of a troubled girl whose obsession with a long-ago death puts Bliss, and anyone shes kind to, in mortal danger.

 

Lauren Myracle has taken the ubiquitous friendship novel to a new, dark place.
