Description

A dark and addictive mystery that had me flying through the pages: best read late at night under the covers with the doors locked!--Kara Thomas, author ofThe Darkest Corners

One dead body, one photograph, one comprimising secret. Everyone's a suspect in this classic whodunit murder mystery from Timeless author, Alexandra Monir.

Nicole Morgan has been labeled many things--the geeky music girl, the shy sidekick of Miss Popularity, and the girl with the scar. Now only one name haunts her through the halls of Oyster Bay Prep. The girl in the picture.

After heartthrob Chace Porter is found dead in the woods near the school, the police search for the girl snuggled up next to him in a picture discovered among his personal effects. A girl no one knew was even close to him--and whose best friend, Lana Rivera, was his girlfriend.

Nicole is that girl, and now she's the primary suspect in his murder.

What happened that night? Were Nicole and Chace dating behind Lana's back? Were he and Lana over? Could either of the girls have killed him?


In alternating points of view--that of suspect Nicole Morgan and that of Lana Rivera--and weaving between present-day, flashbacks, and the characters' surreal subconscious, The Girl in the Picture is a unique tale of teen friendship, romance, and deadly secrets.

This is a murder mystery with tightly tucked-in clues. Perfect for readers who enjoy fancy prep-school tales or mysteries.--Booklist

Monir effectively keeps readers guessing until nearly the end. VERDICT Teens will enjoy the cleverly crafted ride of this whodunit.--SLJ

Mystery lovers will find Oyster Bay Prep just to their liking.--The Bulletin
