Description

YOU HAVE FOUR DAYS TO LOCATE FIVE TREASURED TROPHIES. BREAK THE RULES AND YOU ALL DIE. HAPPY HUNTING! Back in September, the town of Bakersville, Ohio made national news when a video went viral featuring thirteen of the high school's elite in compromising positions. Now it's May, and every month since the "Bakersville Dozen" made their infamous appearance on the national stage, one girl has gone missing. Officials are no closer to identifying the criminal. Bailey, "Like a Virgin" Holzman is getting really fed up with the scrutiny. She just wants to enjoy the rest of her senior year and have an epic summer before heading off to college. So when she discovers a note in her locker on the last day of school inviting her on a scavenger hunt, she thinks it's just a sweet surprise from her boyfriend trying to cheer her up. But following the clue leads her, instead, to the first official casualty. And another sinister envelope. The killer is close, and it could be anyone. Even the people Bailey's always trusted most--her best friend, her perfect boyfriend, or the boy-next door she's always pined for. With the clock ticking, she faces a terrifying choice: play the game by the killer's rules--follow the clues, tell no one, and no cops--for a chance to save the rest of the missing girls, or risk becoming the next grisly victim. The latest heart-pounding thriller from Kristina McBride blends elements of Gone Girl, Pretty Little Liars, and Stephen King into a story that will leave you guessing until the final pages.show more

Review quote

Praise for Kristina McBride: "Fans of R.L. Stine's Fear Street series and Gretchen McNeil's Ten will love this intense chiller, with psychological suspense and romantic drama that add to the past pace and confusion Bailey feels as she tries to discern who she can trust. The video, and the inability to remove it from the internet as it continues to impact the girls' lives, is a sad reflection of the frustrating reality of sexual harassment in our digital age." --RT Reviews "From the painfully high stakes to the heart-pounding timeline, this twisty thriller left me breathless! McBride's tale hits eerily close to home, too, reminding us how quickly things can turn from bad to much, much worse." --Natalie D. Richards, author of One Was Lost "A fast-paced thriller with plot twists, intrigue, and revelations practically on every page. . . . Clever, taut storytelling." --Kirkus Reviews on A Million Times Goodnight "This is a wild ride." --School Library Journal on A Million Times Goodnight "A Million Times Goodnight explores the power we all have to alter our own future." --Gwendolyn Heasley, author of Don't Call Me Baby and Where I Belong "Tense! The constant push and pull of frienship, pain, love, and jealousy is beautifully drawn. A definite must read." --Jay Asher, New York Times bestselling author of Thirteen Reasons Why and The Future of Us on The Tension of Opposites "Infused with page-turning mystery, One Moment is as heartbreakingly real as it is unexpectedly romantic." --Cat Patrick, author of Forgotten and Revived "One Moment took my breath away. Beautifully written, achingly romantic, and so much tension the pages seem like they're turning themselves. One of the best books I've read in ages. --Lauren Barnholdt, author of Two-Way Street "A page-turner that grabbed me by the throat, and was impossible to put down!"--Katrina Kittle, author of Reasons to Be Happy on One Moment "Kristina McBride has written a poignant, heartbreaking tale of how one moment in a person's life can change everything. . . . [A] a worthy addition to teen collections." --VOYA on One Moment "McBride's story of death's effect on the living is both artistic and authentic." --Booklist on One Moment "McBride . . . skillfully interweaves Maggie's flashes of memory with present action, making for a tense and absorbing psychological mystery . . ." --Publishers Weeklyon One Momentshow more
