Would you risk your life to save your best friend? 

Julia did. When a paroled predator attacked Liv in the woods, Julia fought back and got caught. Liv ran, leaving Julia in the woods for a terrifying 48 hours that she remembers only in flashbacks. One year later, Liv seems bent on self-destruction, starving herself, doing drugs, and hooking up with a violent new boyfriend. A dead girl turns up in those same woods, and Julia’s memories resurface alongside clues unearthed by an ambitious reporter that link the girl to Julia’s abductor. As the devastating truth becomes clear, Julia realizes that after the woods was just the beginning.


It's almost a year since Julia got in between her best friend and a predator in the woods. She was kidnapped for 2 days and managed to escape and had been going through PTSD. Doesn't help that a murder had occurred hear the site she was kidnapped had just surfaced, news reporters are trudging up the past, a lot of holes are being revealed about he case and her best friend seems to be finding herself in trouble.

I really enjoyed the mystery behind the story, I though it was interesting to see Julia go through PSTD and how she was handling it. But like the holes in the story caused by the policed in her case there was the same holes in the book that left it feeling unfinished. There was so much left unsaid that left me wondering what happened. The storyline was interesting, the book was well written it just needed a bit more.It was a quick read, there was loads of drama and mystery to keep the readers going. I really do believe that this is a great book and I loved reading it but the ending is want got me iffy about it. Even after that I would still highly recommend you lovely readers to check out this book.
