Last year Godwin Honors Hall was draped in black. The university was mourning the loss of one of its own: Nicole Werner, a blond, beautiful, straight-A sorority sister tragically killed in a car accident that left her boyfriend, who was driving, remarkably (some say suspiciously) unscathed.
Although a year has passed, as winter begins and the nights darken, obsession with Nicole and her death reignites: She was so pretty. So sweet-tempered. So innocent. Too young to die.
Unless she didn’t.
Because rumor has it that she’s back.
I read this book on my kindle, so I never actually knew how many pages it was until I began writing this review. I will tell you right now that you would never guess it was a nearly 500 page book! It was such a fast read - easy to follow - and full of so much suspense. I loved it.
The book focuses on one tragic car accident, where a boy named Craig ended up killing his girlfriend, Nicole....or did he?? And this is where all the fun begins. Conspiracies, cover-ups, ghost-stories - they all make for one fun novel that always managed to keep me guessing.
I especially liked the fact that there were so many different characters in the story, but I never got confused. Each person had a distinct voice and each of their side stories were interesting and almost like a soap opera. But in the end, when they all come together and realize that they are each just small parts of a bigger picture, it was perfect.
I also think that after going to college and seeing all the cliques (especially between sororities and fraternities), I found everything in this story so believable! LOL. Read it, and let me know if you feel the same way!!!
