What did you like about the book? Kate is an 18-year-old teenager who has had to learn to survive on her own.  She skips around different private schools and works hard to keep her secrets hidden.  At her new school, she meets Olivia who has just come back from a year-long “hospital” stay.  These two girls find each other and cling to each other- both not knowing that the other is using her.  A handsome and young employee is also new at school.  Everyone has crushes on him including the staff.  Little do we know he is a sociopath who likes to use women for his own gain.  Kate and Olivia need to rely on each other to fend off this sociopath with deadly consequences.

The cover is very reminiscent of “Gone Girl” and “The Girl on the Train.”
