A new page-turning thriller from USA Today bestselling author David Bell.
When a girl disappears, who do you suspect?
When 17-year-old Hunter Gifford wakes in the hospital on the night of homecoming, he’s shocked to learn he and his girlfriend, Chloe Summers, have been in a terrible car accident. Hunter has no memory of the crash, and his shock turns to horror when he is told Chloe’s blood has been found in the car―but she has disappeared.
Back at school, his fellow students taunt him, and his former best friend starts making a true-crime documentary about the case―one that points the finger directly at Hunter. And just when things can’t get any worse, Chloe’s mother stands in front of the entire town at a candlelight vigil and accuses Hunter of murder.
Under mounting pressure from the police, Hunter takes matters into his own hands by questioning anyone who might know the truth and posting videos to prove his innocence. When Hunter learns he and Chloe were seen arguing loudly outside the dance, he faces a sickening possibility. Was he angry enough to kill the person he loved?

THANKS TO NETGALLEY AND THE PUBLISHER FOR THIS REVIEW COPY IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW.
Hunter woke up at the hospital with some blind spots in his memory. He and his girlfriend, Chloe, were in an accident and can’t remember anything about it, Chloe is missing and no one knows what happened to her. Hunter is obviously a suspect in the eyes of everyone but he is helpless and desperately wants to figure out what happened that night.
The story was exciting and able to keep me hooked, but at the same time, the first half of the book was lacking that mystery element that motivate the reader to finish the book. I felt that story was more focused on family dynamics and people related to Hunter which is not a bad thing but I felt the balance wasn’t there. However, the chapters were short and easy to follow. The story seemed to be more suitable for a young audience. The ending felt rushed and left me wanting more human emotions.
