Mallory knows she stabbed her boyfriend, it's been cleared as self defense. But now his mother is stalking her and her parents decide to send her away to school to get out of the situation. But even in a new setting she is still trying to fit together all the pieces. She can only remember bits and pieces of what happened that night and the meetings with the lawyer since. She has no recollection on why exactly she stabbed him, what caused her to be so afraid.

The main characters has experienced something very traumatic and keeps having flashes or things that could have, or did happen...we aren't sure. She's paranoid, has anxiety and has a hard time trusting anybody. The story jumps back and forth from current day into her memories of the day she killed her boyfriend. So we slowly get snippets of that day throughout the story that will eventually lead up to piecing everything together. 

I love horror stories and this book was so much fun to read, I read it in one day and loved how we are just given the tiniest of a hint to what could have happened that night. Also mixed in with a whole new mystery of what is happening with this group at school. Highly enjoyed this thrill ride and it was dark, freaky and lots of blood.
