Summary from Goodreads:

When she was a child, Cassidy Pratt accidentally started a fire that killed her neighbor. At least, that’s what she’s been told. She can’t remember anything from that day, and her town’s bullies, particularly the cruel and beautiful Melody Davenport, have never let her live it down.

But then Melody goes missing, and Cassidy thinks she may have information. She knows she should go to the cops, but she recently joked about how much she’d like to get rid of Melody. She even planned out the perfect way to do it. And then she gets a chilling text from an unknown number: I’m so glad we’re in this together.

Now it’s up to Cassidy to figure out what really happened before the truth behind Melody’s disappearance sets the whole town ablaze.

Review:

Creepy is right... This book kept me guessing the whole time I was reading it.

We follow a group of pretty messed up kids, who blackmail, threaten and lie to each other daily. This turmoil of a cast kept me on my toes wondering, "could it be them? I think so... Nope, not them... Wait, is it?" In the end, I didn't see it coming.

The back story really helped hold the plot together and unfolded so precisely that I felt like I had lived it along with the characters.

I really enjoyed this read. Blasted through it in one sitting. A great creepy read for a dreary spring afternoon.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
