On a fateful summer morning in 1986, two eleven-year-old girls meet for the first time. By the end of the day, they will both be charged with murder. Twenty-five years later, journalist Kirsty Lindsay is reporting on a series of sickening attacks on young female tourists in a seaside vacation town when her investigation leads her to interview carnival cleaner Amber Gordon. For Kirsty and Amber, it’s the first time they’ve seen each other since that dark day so many years ago. Now with new, vastly different lives—and unknowing families to protect—will they really be able to keep their wicked secret hidden?
OMG!! I had the audio version of this book and that narrator did a fantastic job with the different voices and the tone overall. It is truly a remarkable story-two little girls kill and third girl and are punished for their crime and then are told that they can never been in contact with one another again, ever. One girl comes from a seeming good home and has everything she needs while the other has a very dysfunctional home and no money. It’s amazing to see them twenty-five years later and to see how their lives have changed. They accidentally meet because of a murder investigation and a the job of a reporter that one of them holds. The murders continue and are intertwined within the life of one of them and the end is something I did not see coming. I also enjoyed the flashbacks into the lives of the two women as children and to see how their crime came to happen. That’s what made it so good.
