Ask Aria Morse anything, and she must answer with the truth. Yet she rarely understands the cryptic words she's compelled to utter. Blessed—or cursed—with the power of an oracle who cannot decipher her own predictions, she does her best to avoid anyone and everyone. But Aria can no longer hide when Jade, one of the few girls at school who ever showed her any kindness, disappears. Any time Aria overhears a question about Jade, she inadvertently reveals something new, a clue or hint as to why Jade vanished. But like stray pieces from different puzzles, her words never present a clear picture. Then there's Alex, damaged and dangerous, but the first person other than Jade to stand up for her. And Will, who offers a bond that seems impossible for a girl who's always been alone. Both were involved with Jade. Aria may be the only one who can find out what happened, but the closer she gets to solving the crime, the more she becomes a target. Not everyone wants the truth to come out.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A suspenseful, surprising novel from start to finish.” Alex Flinn, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Pauley updates the conceit of a compulsively truthful, Cassandra-like protagonist in this well-executed mystery.…Pauley’s characterizations are superior, and the startling, sometimes painful things Aria says make for sharp dialogue…An absorbing and resonant read.” Publishers Weekly
“A girl’s unwanted oracular powers mean she can’t make friends or even go out in public, as she cannot stop herself from answering any question she hears…Pauley keeps the pages flipping. She paints a fascinating portrait of Aria, both her insecurities and eventually her courage. By giving readers occasional glimpses into the mind of the killer, she raises the stakes for Aria. A well-written character study and thriller all in one.” Kirkus Reviews
