Blurb (from Goodreads):
After witnessing the murders of her three best friends and having their killer arrested, seventeen-year-old Corey Nguyen is having trouble adjusting to life after high school. As a freshman in college, all she wants is to put her dark past behind her, make some new friends, and keep her head down.
Her new world comes crashing down when the killer changes his plea to not guilty, claiming he was coerced into a confession. Corey must now testify in a murder trial, making the panic attacks and flashbacks to the night of the murders intensify. To top it all off, she's pretty sure her mother is having an affair with the prosecuting attorney. To Corey’s dismay, the story clearly doesn't end with the murder of her friends.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
“I never really saw him much.” I paused again and looked at Haywood carefully. “Until the night he killed my friends.”
This was a contemporary story about a murder trial.
I felt quite sorry for Corey in this story, especially when the lawyer was badgering her. It was awful that she had to go through a trial at all, without it looking like the killer could walk free.
The storyline in this was about the trial following the events of book 1, and also about Corey moving on with her life. We did once again get loads of flashbacks in this book though, and I once again felt like the book dragged because of it.
The ending to this was good, and I was satisfied with the way things turned out.
