I was thirteen the first time my brother tried to kill me.
These days, Della is a loving wife, a dedicated teacher, a woman trying to do her best. She has put her past far behind her. But she hasn’t forgotten the lessons she learned.
It’s just a regular morning when Della welcomes Zoey to her English class. She treats her like any other new student: assigns her a desk, hands out the work. But then she meets Zoey’s cold, calculating eyes and freezes as terrifying memories threaten to overwhelm her.
Della knows what evil looks like when it hides behind a confident smile. Her own brother, the town’s darling, couldn’t keep his true nature hidden for ever. Della has been watching out for people like him ever since, determined to stop them before it’s too late.
When a student is viciously attacked and Della is sent a detailed account of the crime, she’s more convinced than ever that Zoey has darkness inside her.
But to make people believe her, she needs proof. Will she risk everything to get it? And without it, can she be sure she’s right?
Prepare to be hooked by this dark, gripping crime thriller, perfect for fans of Karin Slaughter, Gillian Flynn and Rachel Caine.

So when a new student named Zoey starts school and exhibits the same traits and behavior as her brother did, she decides that she is going to do something about it. This time she is going to save people the way she was unable to save her brothers victims.
This book keeps you interested as it goes from past to present and the reader gets more tidbits along the way as to Della and her brothers past. What I didn't like about the book was there are no OMG moments no twists and turns, it's basically what you see is what you get in the premise. The entire story is pretty much laid out for you in the very beginning and the reader just gets more and more details as it goes along. The reason I gave it three stars is based on the reviews I read I was anticipating some kind of surprise, shock or "whoa" moment that never comes, just more background information on what you already know from the very beginning. Bottom line if you're looking for a mystery with twists and turns this is not it. To be completely honest I am surprised at all the great reviews and how many stars the book actually got. This book isn't thrilling and it's possible the author made it purposefully predictable and wanted the story to be more about redemption due to guilt more than wanting to shock and surprise the reader.
This kind of story is fine for some but I like some kind of surprise or twist with a story. I kept expecting some kind of thrilling plot twist but it never happened. This book is like watching a documentary where you already know the person is guilty and what they're guilty of but you watch anyway to get more specific details about their crimes, therefore it made a very anticlimactic ending.

Sadly the ending was too predictable, silly and far-fetched. There was no exciting twist with the reader in shock at not having seen what was coming. It provided me with an evening of reading on a cold winter's evening. Nothing more, nothing less.
I cannot wait to read Miranda's next title which I've already pre-ordered.
