Description

Five friends. Only one can survive the Neverworld Wake. Who would you choose?

From the acclaimed New York Times bestselling author of Special Topics in Calamity Physics and Night Film comes an absorbing psychological suspense thriller in which fears are physical and memories come alive. "A thriller that will grip readers from the start." -Hypable Once upon a time, back at Darrow-Harker School, Beatrice Hartley and her five best friends were the cool kids, the beautiful ones. Then the shocking death of Jim--their creative genius and Beatrice's boyfriend--changed everything. One year after graduation, Beatrice is returning to Wincroft--the seaside estate where they spent so many nights sharing secrets, crushes, plans to change the world--hoping she'll get to the bottom of the dark questions gnawing at her about Jim's death. But as the night plays out in a haze of stilted jokes and unfathomable silence, Beatrice senses she's never going to know what really happened. Then a mysterious man knocks on the door. Blithely, he announces the impossible: time for them has become stuck, snagged on a splinter that can only be removed if the former friends make the harshest of decisions. Now Beatrice has one last shot at answers . . . and at life. And so begins the Neverworld Wake. "A truly eerie reading experience." -Nylon "A dark and twisty tale brimming with psychological suspense." -Bustle

Review quote

"Pessl (Special Topics in Calamity Physics) adeptly creates a compelling nightmare world while maintaining a foothold in realism. Thought-provoking and suspenseful." --PW "Unpredictable, exciting, and emotionally wrenching." --SLJ "Pessl manages to keep her first-person narrative moving forward while her characters are stuck in time. An eloquent and haunting tale." --Kirkus Reviews "This novel has ambition to spare, and teens looking for something odd, atmospheric, and twisty will likely be enthralled." --Booklist
