Sunday Synopsis

Reconstructing AmeliaReconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! I was not expecting this! I came across this book from an ad that said, "If you liked Gone Girl..." I could not put this book down!

Single mother and attorney Kate lives with her daughter Amelia in Brooklyn. Kate is a junior partner at a law firm and works countless hours leaving Amelia with a nanny, until this year, 10th grade, when Amelia says she is too old for a nanny. Amelia attends a pricey private school called Grace Hall. She is an academic wonder and an awesome field hockey player who isn't part of the "popular" group but seems to be okay with that.

One afternoon, Kate is interrupted during an important client meeting with a phone call from Grace Hall. Amelia has been caught cheating and is being suspended from school. Kate must go to the school immediately to pick her up. Late, as usual, when she finally arrives, she is shocked to see police and an ambulance at the school. One of the co-eds has jumped to her death.

Only, a few weeks later, Kate receives a message that says, "She didn't jump." Kate delves into a maze of emails, text message, secret websites, secret clubs, hazing, first crushes, and old friendships that go farther back than Kate first realizes. She couldn't save Amelia, but she is determined to vindicate her memory.

This psychological thriller kept me on the edge of my seat. With well-developed, believable characters, a compelling plot, and mysterious revelations, you won't be able to put it down, either!
