Perfect for fans of Christopher Pike's Chain Letter
and Lois Duncan's I Know What You Did Last Summer
will keep readers on the edge of their seats until the very last page!
It was supposed to be the weekend of their lives — an exclusive house party on Henry Island. Best friends Meg and Minnie are looking forward to two days of boys, booze, and fun-filled luxury. But what starts out as fun turns twisted after the discovery of a DVD with a sinister message: Vengeance is mine. And things only get worse from there.
With a storm raging outside, the teens are cut off from the outside world . . . so when a mysterious killer begins picking them off one by one, there's no escape. As the deaths become more violent and the teens turn on one another, can Meg find the killer before more people die? Or is the killer closer to her than she could ever imagine?

"The teens likable, tenacious character and the storys Hollywood-like ending keep this debut on the lighter side, making it just right for late-summer beach reading."--Kirkus Reviews
"K.A. Harrington creates an exciting—yet humorous—romantic thriller."--GirlsLife.com
"Harrington unfurls another gripping whodunit that will keep readers guessing . . . Thanks to Harringtons ability to weave suspenseful yet believable stories full of hidden clues and false leads, what the teenagers uncover about Flynns death goes beyond what most readers will see coming. As in her previous novels, Harringtons fully defined characters and vivid settings set the stage for a riveting read."--Publishers Weekly
"This mystery takes many unexpected twists and turns . . . Corporate misbehavior, economic downturns, and whistle-blowing are not the usual in young adult books, but Harrington makes them relevant to teen readers."--VOYA
