Jane goes to a party on the Jersey Shore expecting to have fun with her friends and a romantic night with her boyfriend. Instead, she is run down by a car and left for dead - tangled in a rosebush on the side of the road. Waking up in the hospital, Jane realizes she has no memory of what happened at the party, and that she is also paralyzed. With snatches of memory coming back at random moments and accounts from her friends, Jane attempts to piece together what really happened that night and who wants her dead - because the killer isn't finished with her. Jane receives mysterious gifts and phone calls from the person responsible for her accident. The problem is, no one believes she is in danger. They blame the paranoia on all the drugs she is taking for the pain. Will she be able to figure out who is after her before it is too late? Michele Jaffe has crafted a great mystery. She is able to make the reader continually change their minds about what happened by presenting us with several feasible suspects. So, you might ask why I didn't give it 5 stars. Honestly, I didn't find the final culprit to be believable. Other suspects had better reasons for wanting Jane out of the way than the actual person who harmed her. Also, I liked Jane, but she was too easily swayed by boys. Every time she met a new one she seemed to like him immediately. But, even with these two things, the book was great. I totally couldn't put it down.

Thanks to Puget Sound Council for providing this review copy. So who did it? Jane awakens in the hospital, remembering little from the party at the Jersey Shore the night before and even less about the accident which injured her. Her two best friends are there for her in her recovery but her boyfriend might not be her boyfriend any more. People seem to believe she tried to kill herself by kneeling in the road on that dark night but why would she do that? Jane doesn't believe she was suicidal but her memory can't confirm that.

Friends, enemies, Mom's hated boyfriend--they all play a part. I was surprised at the ending and a bit disappointed at the reasoning for why the person tried to kill Jane, but a good teen mystery with plenty of twists and turns.
