Simon and Schuster, 2011. ISBN: 978 0 85707 486 7.
(Age : 14+) Recommended. Em loves the winter holidays. And this year, things are really looking up: the guy she's been into for months has finally noticed her. But if she starts something with him, there's no turning back. Because he's going out with her best friend.
 On the other side of town, Chase's home life is stressful and his social life unravelling. But that's nothing compared to what's really haunting him. For Chase has done something cruel - something the perfect guy he pretends to be would never do. And it's only a matter of time before he's exposed.
Mistakes can be deadly. And three beautiful, mysterious girls are about to make them pay . . .
A very interesting book that puts a spin on why people have unexpected accidents. It show that when you do something wrong in your life, be quick to apologise and always tell the truth. Miles captured me with her writing skills and I was sucked into the story in no time at all.  A moving story that will truly make you think about the things you have done and whether they were really worth it or if they should have never been done.
