Laurie Hale has the perfect life--and the perfect family to go with it--until her teenage daughter is accused of murder, and the life Laurie knows disappears.
Laurie Hale imagined fun, love, and success for her daughter, Anna. But when one of Anna's classmates is murdered and the police start asking questions, a very different future threatens everything Laurie values. Anna isn't the only suspect--a whole group of teenagers seems to be involved, but none of them is talking, and the community is in an uproar. Laurie's marriage bears the strain of the crisis, and her only ally is Janice, a wealthy woman from the church who refuses to let Laurie slip away quietly. Ultimately, Laurie must face her fears: What if Anna really was involved in Randi's murder? And what kind of person is Laurie if she can doubt her own child's innocence?
