    In August, Anna Cicconi sits in a police station and confesses to the accidental killing of Zoe Spanos. Zoe, a girl from a town in the Hamptons, went missing over New Year's when she was home on college break; her body has just been discovered sunk in a lake. Her family wants the case solved, but not everyone is ready to believe Anna's confession. For starters, though they look strangely similar, there's no proof that Anna and Zoe ever met. Anna, who came to the Hamptons in June for a nanny job, was fascinated by Zoe's disappearance, following a podcast created by one of Zoe's friends that covered the case and conducting investigations of her own. With her troubled past and faulty memories, Anna is hardly a reliable narrator, and the narrative, which zips back and forth between June and August and includes transcripts from the Missing Zoe podcast, plays into the confusion. Inspired by Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca, this is a gripping (especially in its back half) and tightly wound exploration of the price of secrets. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
