I had no idea what this book would be about when I agreed to read and review it. Katherine Hayton really knows how to write and draw the readers in. I could not stop reading this book--I read late into the night! It is not what you think by looking at the cover. It is the recounting of a dead girl's life-told by her-as she is sitting in the courtroom after they finally found her body and are having an inquest! It goes through the whole sordid life this girl lived--from an alcoholic Mom to be constantly bullied and to being contacted by a ghost that is attempting to help her. But all is not as it seems and if I go into much more I will give it all away. I really suggest you read this book--it is an after the the fact psychological murder mystery which you will not soon forget. I know I won't. There is some explicit language actually necessary to the storyline so the author recommends for 17+ only. The author has written two other books which I will be getting eventually.
About the Book: (from Amazon)
Three months before she died Daina Harrow faced a bully at school.
Six weeks before she died Daina Harrow suffered an assault in the park.
One week before she died Daina Harrow stole a secret people had killed to hide.
That was ten years ago. Ten long years.
Now, her bones have been found on a building site. A coroner's inquest has been reopened. A parade of witnesses is about to start.
And Daina's here. Watching every day as her mother cries in the courtroom. Watching every day as her friends, and her enemies, and her killers lie about her on the stand.
Watching, and making sure that no matter what the coroner hears, you know the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
So help you God.
