With Malice
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Wish you weren't here . . .

When Jill wakes up in a hospital bed with her leg in a cast, the last six weeks of her life are a complete blank. All she has been told is that she was involved in a fatal accident while on a school trip in Italy and had to be jetted home to receive intensive care. Care that involves a lawyer. And a press team. Because maybe the accident . . . wasn't just an accident.

With no memory of what happened or what she did, can Jill prove her innocence? And can she really be sure that she isn't the one to blame?

My rating: 3.25 of 5 stars

With Malice “You were in a car accident.”

This was a YA mystery story about a girl who couldn’t remember the car accident which almost killed her.

Jill was an okay character, although her amnesia was a bit frustrating. She did seem totally in the dark as to what had happened though, and truly believed that she couldn’t have crashed the car on purpose.

The storyline in this was able Jill waking up in a hospital, and having no memories of the previous 6 weeks of her life, including the car accident that landed her in hospital. We got the police trying to work out what had happened, and Jill trying to regain her memories, as well as the threat of Jill being arrested for her part in the accident. We did get a couple of twists, and I thought the mystery aspect of the story was done pretty well.

The ending to this did thankfully tell us what had happened, although I did guess part of the mystery.

6.5 out of 10
