Amber has just become aware that she is in a hospital, in a coma. While she can hear what is going on around her, she can't move, even to open her eyes. She hears that she was in a car accident and went through a window. She hears that the police think her husband had something to do with it. She hears the doctor threatening her, putting something in her IV. When Amber flashes back to a few weeks before and the time leading up to the accident, she starts to piece together why she is there. Amber also flashes back to childhood, to a sometimes sinister ten-year-old's diary, which never mentions her younger sister Claire. In pieces and fragments, the story slowly comes together, only to change as soon as readers think they have a handle on what is true and what isn't. Stephanie Racine reads with the right amount of fear, urgency, and sly treachery. Her performance helps to confuse readers as the story becomes more and more convoluted, with each surprise bigger than the next.
VERDICT A fun thriller with a terrifically twisted ending that fans of Gone Girl and Girl on a Train will love.
