Publisher's Summary

"Schoolgirl missing", the ticker reads, and the camera cuts to a girl’s face. Blonde hair waterfalling over her shoulders, serious eyes, lips a little parted like she’s about to speak. That’s when I realize I’ve been holding my breath, because the gasp when I inhale almost chokes me.

Sadie Kelly has lost her job. Until last month, she was a teacher at Horton College - the same high school she went to 10 years ago along with her best friend, Fiona. But Fiona died in an accident on their graduation night, in circumstances Sadie’s spent the last 10 years trying to forget, and since then nothing’s been the same.

Now Sadie’s jobless and living with Fiona’s mother, Jan, the woman who’s watched over Sadie since she was a little girl, and the one person Sadie would do anything to protect. But when Sadie hears that Horton schoolgirl Devon Hundley has gone missing, everything changes. Devon is the daughter of Philip Hundley - wealthy school donor, local doctor, and a man Sadie knows all too well. And now Sadie can't help remembering the last time she saw Devon - and heard her whisper something Sadie's been trying ever since to forget....

A gripping pause resister of family secrets and buried lies for fans of Liane Moriaty, Lisa Jewell, and Catherine Ryan Hyde.

Was not the story I expected, much better.

Great twists and turns, the underlying secret was very unexpected. some depth lost in the telling as you don't really know the characters story, but it kept me wanting to finish the book and glad I did.

A bad purchase based on reviews

I finally gave up on this book. I have struggled to wait for something to happen. stopped & started as it failed to keep my attention. the narrator is monotone. the story line has no energy. and the main female character is ungrounded & weak. putty in the hands of a persuasive married man who happens to be step father to one of her students. there's a bright idea. an altogether disappointing waste of time. if you are searching for a good read, search on. after suffering through many tedious hours I am giving up because I cannot bear the thought of 4 + more hours with these characters.

Unfortunate

Although I enjoyed this story and found I wanted to know more as it went along, the narrator sounded bored. Unfortunately it was this boredom that put me off listening. I think when turning a book into a audible book you really need to think about the person who reads it. Maybe she was having a bad day put she sounded like she just couldn’t be bothered. Very unfortunate.
