Amber wakes up in a hospital. She can't move. She can't speak. She can't open her eyes. She can hear everyone around her, but they have no idea. Amber doesn't remember what happened, but she has a suspicion her husband had something to do with it. Alternating between her paralyzed present, the week before her accident, and a series of childhood diaries from twenty years ago, this psychological thriller asks: Is something really a lie if you believe it's the truth?

Now this is what you call a psychological thriller! This book had me hooked, loved every bit of it. A chilling story, with a plot that slowly reveals itself to you. Excellent writing too, throughly enjoyed it.

As someone said below, I feel like I should go back and read this again because I did get a little confused at the end. (I'm pretty sure I figured it out now.) Otherwise it was a great read. Each chapter left me guessing; how in the world is this going to end. It usually takes me 3 to 5 weeks to read a book; but I couldn't put this one down. It was a dark story, (to me). So if you are looking for something upbeat you may want to choose another book.

Sorry but I was not a fan of this book. I found it confusing and thin on plot. Definetly not a feel good book.

Like the "Sixth Sense"; I wanted to start the novel from the beginning as soon as I finished it to find the clues I may have missed. Can't wait to see how they turn this into a movie/TV series and who will play the leads.

Loved this book. I couldn't put it down. Unlike some of the other reviews, I did not find it hard to follow and loved the twists from the author. It moved fast and was a very easy read. Can't wait for her next novel!

This book is full of surprises. High marks for all the misdirection and small cues that lead you to the breathtaking finish. I hope there is a sequel. . .

Unlikable main character and too convoluted. Eh...

The twists take on so many different casts - time passes in different flows, and we can neither trust the words of the narrator or other characters. This one will keep you guessing.

Excellent debut novel! I couldn't put it down and am anxious for her to write more.
