Rating: 4.5/5 stars

This book was really intense. After reading and loving Carrie Ryan's Forest of Hands and Teeth trilogy, I knew I had to pick this book up. And it did not disappoint.

After a ship gets into an accident and Frances's entire family dies, she sets out to seek revenge on those who caused the accident that took everyone from her. She spends four years planning the revenge by taking on the identity of someone else and keeping meticulous notes on everyone she knows. In this story, every detail matters.

Other than Frances, the only other people to survive the ship's accident are a senator and his son. And they lie about the nature of the accident. Frances knows that if they're lying then they must be involved in what's going on, so she makes it her goal to expose them as the liars they are and inform the world of the true nature of the accident.

I love the narration in this story and the way Frances connects clues together. I was always enraptured by what was going on and how one detail led to another until a whole picture was built before me in seconds.

The biggest downside was that there were flashbacks throughout the story, and, at least on audio, I had a hard time at first differentiating between the present and the past. I'm not sure if the book displays flashbacks differently than the rest of the book text, but the audio was a bit confusing. Thankfully, it did not detract too much from the story.
