Reconstructing Amelia

By:Kimberly McCreight
Location:FIC MCC
Genre: Lots of "M"s-  Murder, Mum and daughter, Mystery and more!

HOW WELL DO YOU KNOW YOUR OWN DAUGHTER ?
HOW MUCH WOULD YOU TELL YOU MOTHER?

Oh I remember not telling my mum a stack of stuff, shifting to a new town, being bullied at the new school, getting beaten up and getting a black eye, lying about it... yep teenagers hide their worlds, some end up succumbing and roll into hopelessness and powerlessness, others fight back, others mange to evade and escape. Amelia- well which road does she take, Mum needs to find out, but she is just not sure?

"Like Gone Girl this seamlessly marries a crime story with a relationship drama. And like Gone Girl it should be hailed as one of the best books of the year" Entertainment Weekly

Kate, a single mother in her late 30s, is a junior partner in a large NY law firm, logging in the hours and missing her teenaged daughter, Amelia. Her world is shattered when Amelia throws herself off the roof of her school after Amelia is caught plagiarizing a paper. Or did Amelia kill herself? Kate has her doubts, which multiply after she receives a mysterious, anonymous text.
