Abstract:

Kate is in the middle of the biggest meeting of her career when she gets the telephone call from Grace Hall, her daughter's exclusive private school in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Amelia has been suspended, effective immediately, and Kate must come get her daughter now. But Kate's stress over leaving work quickly turns to panic when she arrives at the school and finds it surrounded by police officers, fire trucks, and an ambulance. By then it's already too late for Amelia. And for Kate. An academic overachiever despondent over getting caught cheating has jumped to her death. At least that is the story Grace Hall tells Kate. And clouded as she is by her guilt and grief, it is the one she forces herself to believe. Until she gets an anonymous text: She didn't jump. The novel is about secret first loves, old friendships, and an all-girls club steeped in tradition. But, most of all, it's the story of how far a mother will go to vindicate the memory of a daughter whose life she couldn't save

Kate is interrupted by a call to say that her daughter Amelia has been suspended from prep school. As she arrives to take her home she is greeted by sirens wailing and ambulance lights blazing. Her daughter has jumped off the roof. And so begins an investigation which takes her deep into Amelia's private world. But did Amelia jump?

Kate Barons teenagedatter Amelia begår selvmord ved at springe ud fra skolens tag. Kate nægter dog at tro at det var selvmord og beslutter sig for at finde frem til sandheden. Men jagten på sandheden, giver samtidig Kate et indblik i et ubarmhjertigt teenageliv og løfter sløret for store hemmeligheder
