"Toni Murphy was eighteen when she and her boyfriend, Ryan, were wrongly convicted of the murder of her younger sister. Now she is thirty-four and back in her hometown, working every day to forge and adjust to a new life on the outside. She's doing everything in her power to avoid violating her parole and going back to prison. But nothing is making that easy--not Ryan, who is convinced he can figure out the truth; not her mother, who clearly doubts Toni's innocence; and certainly not the group of women who made Toni's life miserable in high school and may have darker secrets than anyone realizes. Before Toni can truly move on, she must risk everything to find out the truth and clear her name"-- Provided by publisher.

I really struggled with this novel. In the beginning, it seemed like it was too immature, poorly written and I didn't much like the main characters. A little too much back and forth to prison. Even the ending was a bit of a let down after suffering through 360-odd pages. I really liked another of her novels so thought I'd try again but was disappointed.

This writer is a joy to read. Every word counts without the usual fill of overlong description of unimportant things. The novel is written with chapters almost alternating between the present and the past showing how the main character, Toni, got to be in the situation she presently is in. The story circulates around bullying - by teens, by police, by prisoners. It's a well told story from the point of view of the 17 year old girl from an ordinary family and her boyfriend who are accused and judged of being responsible for the murder of the girl's sister. I will be reading more of Stevens' books and not just because I like to support Canadian authors. The author who is from BC has placed the setting of this novel in her home town.

Excellent book, very engrossing. The relationship between Toni and Ryan was very heartfelt.

This book........It was a page-turner right until the end. I have to say, I was a bit disappointed in the ending, though. Things seemed a little rushed in the last few chapters. <SPOILER> I was also disappointed that she never seemed to make things right with her mom. I get that it is probably more realistic that way, but as a new mother it made me sad that a mother and daughter could have such a terrible relationship. Still, I'd like to read more Chevy Stevens, this and Still Missing were quite good reads.

I really liked this book it was so suspenseful once I started one night I couldn't put it down and didn't end up going to bed until very late! The next morning I couldn't wait to pick up where I left off and ended up finishing this in a total of a day. I thought it was well written and very suspenseful and a good story line. I would read again if I didn't already know the ending!

Took a little bit to get into, but after awhile I couldn't put it down.

Why do people, like 'atfrancis', feel the need to state endings to books? If you don't like a book, just say it.

Reads like a teenager's diary. Should be in the YA section. Lackluster and tedious read with a predictable happily-ever-after ending.
