In the vein of Big Little Lies and Reconstructing Amelia comes an emotionally charged domestic suspense novel about a mother unraveling the truth behind how her daughter became brain dead. Or, was there something darker, more sinister at work? Reconstructing Amelia brings a cast of characters, all flawed, and all with secrets, that weave a tapestry of deception, bullying, and cruelty. I couldn't help but draw parallels between the "mean girls" from school, and the petty, back-stabbing politics at Amelia's mother's top-tier law firm.
I had quibbles. The police investigation allows the mother far more access to interviews than real-life would probably afford, but this is forgivable as it gives us the opportunity for a tight, first-person narration of a gripping story. The point-of-view, and the timeline, shift between Amelia and her mother Kate, from present to past. At first I thought this might be confusing, but McCreight does a good job threading both stories and both timelines together.
It gets five stars because I couldn't put it down. Each reveal made me thirsty for the next. This is fiction that won't change your life, but it will make you happy while you read it.

This book is a rather fast paced read, partially due to its innovative presentation style using Facebook and text message outtakes as some of its chapters. My usual approach to a book is to jump right into the content without examining the cover, copyright page, or content page. I did the same with this book and quickly became lost. Readers should look at the content page and note that 1 each chapter has a character or source name and 2 each chapter has a date.
I got to the second Amelia posting, entry six, before admitting to myself that I was losing the timeline big picture. I then went back to the content pages to establish a base understanding of relationship.
She was happy not to join any cliques, happy to hang out exclusively with her best friend Sylvia. The two establish their own self perception of superiority to the reigning school popularity class system, until Amelia is seduced into joining a rather toxic social group that seems to delight in humiliating others.
A highly educated single career mom fast tracked for a partner position in a law firm, she is determined to remain a good mother to Amelia. While Kate is preoccupied with secrets in her past, Amelia is racing to keep up with changes that will affect her future. Amelia wants to have a close relationship with Kate, but there is never enough time. So Amelia must confide everything in Sylvia, except for the group named Magpies that wants to initiate Amelia into some humiliating hazing activities.
Unable to confide in Kate or Sylvia, Amelia turns to Ben, a person she knows only through text messages. Left alone a lot, Sylvia turns to sex with Ian as an outlet.

Unknown to her, Ian is involved with the secret group Magpies, as is Amelia. There are lots of supporting characters: There are lots of backstories, a lot of flashbacks that is why the reader should pay attention to the content pages. The clever use of Facebook and text messages can make some of the entries, or chapters go very fast. I read this in four hours on a Sunday afternoon in one reading session. I did not want to put it down because it was very absorbing and I also felt I might get lost if I did so; then I would have to review what I had read before proceeding further.
Of course, I will not reveal the ending, but will note that there are many surprises and, for me, very emotional. I think it inevitable that many will compare this author to Gillian Flynn or Liane Moriarty. Paperback Verified Purchase. This was a story of a girl who seemed to have committed suicide by jumping from her school's roof.
She was a good student, and a good girl, so her mom does not believe that she killed herself. She demands that the police re-open the case, and she starts to discover a lot of things about her daughter that she never knew while she was alive. In the end, the case is solved. Things come to light about Amelia's friends, things she was involved in, and what really happened to her.
I did enjoy this book. It was about pages but it was a fast read. It was a true page turners. There were a lot of surprises throughout the book and it didn't drag. I recommend this book. Did it make me want to never buy my 12 year old a phone, and it opened my eyes to what a teenager having a phone could do.
