Paperbacks High

A gripping, twisty psychological YA thriller from the author of Little Creeping Things.

Piper Sullivan was in a strange hiking accident last month and has been in a coma ever since. Her older sister, Savannah, can’t pretend to be optimistic about it; things look bad. Piper will likely never wake up, and Savannah will never get any answers about what exactly happened.

But then Savannah finds a note in Piper’s locker, inviting Piper to a meeting of their school's wilderness club...at the very place and on the very day that she fell. Which means there was a chance that Piper wasn’t alone. Someone might’ve seen something. Worse, someone might’ve done something. But who would want to hurt the perfect Piper Sullivan…and why?

To discover the truth, Savannah joins the club on their weekend-long camping trip on the same mountain where her sister fell. But she’d better be careful; everyone in the club is a suspect, and everyone seems to be keeping secrets about that tragic day.

And Savannah? She’s been keeping secrets, too…

Gr 8 Up-Savannah Sullivan's younger sister, Piper, is in the hospital after a tragic hiking accident left her comatose. But was it really an accident? Despite being a year older, Savannah is used to living life in Piper's shadow. Piper is smart, talented, and finds success in every endeavor she tries, from journalism to Survival Club. Savannah, though a soccer star at school, never measures up to Piper in her parents' or anyone else's eyes. Savannah believes Piper has it all and would not have any reason to end her own life. After finding a note inviting Piper to a Survival Club meeting at the same spot in which she fell-on a day the club never meets-Savannah starts believing someone in her sister's life may have had a reason of their own to want Piper dead. Savannah, desperate to prove her sister's untimely fall was not an accident, joins the Survival Club on a weekend hiking trip to uncover the truth about what really happened the day Piper fell. Ichaso's thriller is exciting, made up of realistically flawed characters. As secrets are exposed, suspicions shift from one character to the next as everyone is a suspect, from Piper's best friend to the mysterious Alex who called her three times the day of her fall. Characters are white. VERDICT This fast-paced thriller will keep readers guessing from the very first page all the way to the final jaw-dropping sentence.-Amanda Harding
