    Benjamin Whitaker, the artist formerly known as Dad, had hugged a telephone pole while traveling at approximately sixty miles an hour. Swerve, smash, gone. In mere seconds, he's gone, but Sydney isn't sure it was an accident. It doesn't help Sydney's peace of mind when she notices a classmate, June Copeland, at her father's funeral, and later leaving flowers at his grave. As the girls start to bond following the funeral, Sydney wonders where exactly their relationship might be headed, especially since June already has a boyfriend. And then there are the ominous text messages Sydney starts to receive from a restricted number. Tensions continue to mount as the texts become more threatening and Sydney's best friend, her mother, and the police all refuse to believe there's anything sinister at play. Both ominous and deliciously twisted, and populated by an unreliable cast of characters, Brown's debut novel is a low-burn, character-driven thriller that will satisfy fans of mystery who yearn for a proverbial path of breadcrumbs leading to a hopeful, satisfying conclusion. Grades 8-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
