"Two years ago, fifteen-year-old Jamie Henry breathed a sigh of relief when a judge sentenced his older sister to juvenile detention for burning down their neighbor's fancy horse barn. The whole town did. Because Crazy Cate Henry used to be a nice girl. Until she did a lot of bad things. Like drinking. And stealing. And lying. Like playing weird mind games in the woods with other children. Like making sure she always got her way. Or else. But today Cate got out. And now she's coming back for Jamie. Because more than anything, Cate Henry needs her little brother to know the truth about their past. A truth she's kept hidden for years. A truth she's not supposed to tell."--Page [4] of cover.

This book was a very quick read due to the fact that I couldn't put it down! There are twists and turns on every page which keep you guessing until the very end. The ending was a really good way!

"Jamie's older sister Cate is about to be released from juvenile detention, and Jamie is terrified… and intrigued. Cate's conviction was the result of her violent, risky behaviour after the murder of their mother, an event that left Jamie highly medicated and struggling with memory loss. Now, Jamie is desperate to know about his past and what really happened to their mother -- desperate enough to confront both his volatile sister and his own dark, tattered memories. If you were fascinated by the psychological tension and shocking twists in Stephanie Kuehn's first book, Charm & Strange, you won't be able to tear yourself away from this "fast, black whirlpool of a novel" (Booklist)."
