An unforgettable, mesmerizing tale of exquisite obsession, spoiled innocence, and impossible friendships. It's been five years since Summer Marks was brutally murdered in the woods. Everyone thinks Mia and Brynn killed their best friend. That driven by their obsession with a novel called The Way into Lovelorn the three girls had imagined themselves into the magical world where their fantasies became twisted, even deadly. The only thing is: they didn't do it. On the anniversary of Summer's death, a seemingly insignificant discovery resurrects the mystery and pulls Mia and Brynn back together once again. But as the lines begin to blur between past and present and fiction and reality, the girls must confront what really happened in the woods all those years ago--no matter how monstrous.

This book is sinister and delicious, a true penumbra between light and dark. Innocent golden-haired girl, brutally murdered by her best friends? Or twisted queen slaughtered by something out of her control? The malevolent obsession, fringing on borderline mental insanity, perfectly captures the element of horror, while the friendship and suspense-thriller like writing appeal to those of us who love a good murder mystery. The ending, too- masterfully written, sends shivers frissoning down your spine. Modern and feisty, sinister and ancient, this book is definitely for you. And you. And you.

I started this book and it got my attention immediately with the story of Summer's death. The end of the book was also up to Lauren Oliver standards. The in between parts were rambling and too much filler. It did not live up to the "Before I Fall" bar for me. Disappointed!
