Review quote

"Told through both Ben's and the girls' perspectives, the mystery unfolds with aching precision--both Ben's grief and the sisters' pain can be acutely traced as they grow. Even though the truth can be seen before it's revealed, the girls' secrets pack a gut punch that lingers. Haunting and mesmerizing." --Kirkus, starred review

"Savage's skillful writing makes the characters' pain deep and tangible, offering readers the full impact of the deaths on the town. The novel is cleverly divided into chapters of the seven body parts, propelling the search for the next clue. Prepare to be shocked, and have plenty of tissues handy. Perfect for readers of Jay Asher's Thirteen Reasons Why (2007)." --Booklist

"Readers who enjoy mysteries with a mix of inexplicable and all-too-human underpinnings will enjoy this." --Bulleting for the Center of Children's Books

"Readers looking for a unique, haunting mystery will certainly be drawn to this heartbreaking tale." --VOYA
