When her best friend, Meg, drinks a bottle of industrial-strength cleaner alone in a motel room, Cody is understandably shocked and devastated. She and Meg shared everything – so how was there no warning? But when Cody travels to Meg’s college town to pack up the belongings left behind, she discovers that there’s a lot Meg never told her. About her old roommates, the sort of people Cody never would have met in her dead-end town in Washington. About Ben McCalister, the boy with a guitar and a sneer, and some secrets of his own. And about an encrypted computer file that Cody can’t open – until she does, and suddenly everything Cody thought she knew about her best friend’s death gets thrown into question.
Although this book isn’t in the same vein as If I Stay or Where she Went, it is still very Gayle Forman – deep, complex, and most of all, realistic. I didn’t think I was going to like it as much as I did. I had to think about the end for a bit. It’s so much more than meets the eye.
