Jason has fallen for Lacey. She has the same interests as him: she plays the guitar, loves alternative bands and has a great sense of humour. From her online photos, Jason thinks she’s cute, too. The two have been chatting on Facebook each evening for months ... but they have never met in person. Lacey refuses to do so. Why?

Jason googles Lacey’s name and is stunned by what he discovers. As reported by a number of newspapers, Lacey died a year earlier.

The obituaries and memorial pages have no details about her death. How did she die – and who has been chatting with him online in Lacey’s place? Could this be a weird case of identity theft?

Jason feels that he must learn the answers to his questions, but this proves to be complicated and dangerous. Someone doesn’t want him to know the truth. Jason has no idea who he can trust or believe because everyone, even Lacey’s best friend, is hiding something. As he continues to probe, the secrets and deceit surrounding Lacey’s death lead to even more danger for Jason.

Ruth Baron’s debut novel is a suspenseful, well-written mystery for teens featuring plenty of intrigue and a cast of authentic, conceivable characters.
