This is an awesome read and highly recommended for anyone who loves a good, tangled mystery! Ruth Ware has written a beautiful novel that shares the lives of 4 friends and their dark and troubled past. I can't wait to get into another Ruth Ware novel!

I've read several Ruth Ware books and this is by far, the best. Story of four female students at boarding school who play the ultimate Lying Game. When they are expelled from school, they go their separate ways but stay in touch. Seventeen years later, when one of them texts, "I need you" they all drop what they're doing and rush back to the quaint coastal town near former boarding school. The tension builds (no spoiler) and eventually we learn that things aren't as they seemed 17 years prior.

Very well written, a real page turner!

Favorite line: My heart lurches in my chest, and the memories come unbidden, beating at the inside of my head with feathered wings.
