Two jumped off the pier that night...but only one came back alive

Bryn did everything with her best friend Erica. So when someone dared Erica to jump off the pier one night at Harding Beach, Bryn was right by her side. But when Bryn made it back to the surface, Erica was nowhere to be found. Bryn tries to make a fresh start by burying her memories of that awful night. But when a Twitter post from "EricaNShaw" pops up on her feed and a chilling voice mail appears on her phone, she realizes that someone isn't ready to let go of the past…

Because of what happened Brynna is basically consumed with guilt and grief and her life begins spiraling out of control. Attempting a fresh start, her parents move and Brynna starts a new school. But it doesn’t take long her Brynna’s past to catch up with her. 

This story made me really wonder what in the world is going on. Did Erica really come back from the dead? Is someone else just trying to make Brynna pay because she lived and Erica did not? Or is it all in Brynna’s head?

It took a couple of chapters for me to really get into the story, but once I did, I thought it was a pretty suspenseful plot. I wasn’t able to guess the ending.  Everything moved at a decent pace, but I did think there were some parts that lingered a little too long.

This wasn’t my favorite book by Hannah Jayne, but it was still an enjoyable teen thriller.

RATING: 3 out of 5.

  1. Hm, this sounds like a fairly good book. One that was hard to enjoy at the beginning and get engrossed in, but once you do it becomes suspenseful. It also sounds like it gets a bit confusing, so I am not sure how I feel there.
