Senior prom is the happiest night of Gabi’s life. Her crush has just revealed that he is every bit as infatuated with her as she is with him.

But his jealous cousin, Rose, sees her chance to give the knife an even harder twist. She convinces Gabi to meet her at a local parking spot outside town. It's a night that will change several lives forever. One of the girls will return, and one will become known as the remains in the pond.
3 stars from NM:
The concept of this book was totally new to me. It was a whodoneit mixed with YA Romance to which I really liked, and I hope I can find other books like it. I rated this a 3 out of 5 stars. I felt like the beginning of the book was really good, and it kept me turning the pages. It was almost like I was reading two books in one. Both story lines had a great foundation that the author was able to build upon giving the reader lots of details throughout the book until a little over midway through and then something terrible happened. It rushed A LOT. I felt like my brain couldn't keep up with all the new developments, page after page of Gabi and Reese's relationship changing so quickly. The second story wrapped up in just a few short pages. If the author would have written another 200 pages this could have been the YA book of the year.
