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?

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.

It was already a good read, but then there was a twist at the end that I definitely did NOT see coming! I couldn't put it down.

Wonderful writing! I thought this was by far the best "thriller" of the current 'woman in a scary situation' genre. Great twists, which make you do some work remembering and checking back to figure it out. Will look for future books by this author

A page turner that is complex with strong character development. The plot twists at the end led me to re-read parts of the book to ensure I got it right! Masterful writing.
