My Thoughts
Ehm, didn't I start this one yesterday!? Ha, I sure listened fast! I really got into it and wanted to know wtf was wrong with Priya.

Zan had the best BFF. And then she got ghosted. All while Priya shows sunny pics on instagram and talks to everyone else.

So I had a hundred ideas. Priya was a bitch. Priya and Zan had a lover's quarrel. Priya was taken? This one was the darkest. I needed to know. And no one believed Zan, they just said that besties grow apart.

Logan was the best! Everyone should have a Logan, someone who just believe you, no questions asked!. And yes of course I hoped this budding friendship would turn into more too.

Final thoughts
A fast read that has you clamoring for more. What is up with Priya is the thought on every page and I rushed to the end to find out more.

Kate Rudd had a nice range of voices and everyone was distinct. She kept the doubt and suspense coming. It flowed well.

Part whip-smart suspense tale, part touching story of friendship, this is an extraordinary debut about a determined teen trying to solve a mystery no one else believes in.

After Zan's best friend moves to California, she is baffled and crushed when Priya suddenly ghosts. Worse, Priya's social media has turned into a stream of ungrammatical posts chronicling a sunny, vapid new life that doesn't sound like her at all.

Everyone tells Zan not to be an idiot: Let Priya do her reinvention thing and move on. But until Zan hears Priya say it, she won't be able to admit that their friendship is finished.

It's only when she meets Logan, the compelling new guy in Spanish class, that Zan begins to open up about her sadness, her insecurity, her sense of total betrayal. And he's just as willing as she is to throw himself into the investigation when everyone else thinks her suspicions are crazy.

Then a clue hidden in Priya's latest selfie introduces a new, deeply disturbing possibility:

Maybe Priya isn't just not answering Zan's emails.

Maybe she can't.

  10. This does sound addictive! I want to know, too! :)

  11. I read one with this same premise last summer, and yes, it gnaws at you until you learn why about the ghosting. :) I can do that plot again and again so I'll be adding this one to the list.

  12. Well now, this looks good. I love when you finish an audio in the blink of an eye.

  13. Oh, sounds like a nice suspense. I'm not familiar with this author or narrator, but sounds good. Great review.
