"Gripping from start to finish . . . with twists that left me shocked."--Victoria Aveyard, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Red QueenFor fans of Gillian Flynn and Pretty Little Liars, The Darkest Corners is a psychological thriller about the lies little girls tell, and the deadly truths those lies become. There are secrets around every corner in Fayette, Pennsylvania. Tessa left when she was nine and has been trying ever since not to think about what happened there that last summer.
She and her childhood best friend Callie never talked about what they saw. Not before the trial. And certainly not after.

Only the closer Tessa gets to what really happened, the closer she gets to a killer--and this time, it won't be so easy to run away. And don't miss Kara's next "eerie and masterly psychological thriller" Little Monsters--on sale now (SLJ)

Two friends revisit a scarring childhood event
Ten years ago, a serial killer in rural Pennsylvania lured Lori Cawley from the home where she was babysitting two 8-year-old girls and murdered her. Best friends Tessa and Callie were those two girls. Manipulated by police and their parents into testifying against the suspected killer, the girls have always wondered if they sent the wrong man to death row. They haven’t spoken since Tessa moved away after the trial. Now 18, Callie relies on alcohol to suppress her anxiety, and Tessa, who has been abandoned by both her mother and sister, returns to Pennsylvania to say goodbye to her dying father. Tessa’s visit stirs up questions, sending her on a dangerous hunt for answers.
The Darkest Corners is a suspenseful ride that’s really two mysteries in one: the location of Tessa’s sister and what really happened the night Lori was killed. Could Tessa’s sister be involved? A thriller at its core, the novel presents a layered view of how family, friendships and even the flawed judicial system can tear people apart if they let it.
