Katie and Eric Knox have dedicated their lives to their fifteen-year-old daughter Devon, a gymnastics prodigy and Olympic hopeful. But when a violent death rocks their close-knit gymnastics community just weeks before an all-important competition, everything the Knoxes have worked so hard for feels suddenly at risk. As rumors swirl among the other parents, revealing hidden plots and allegiances, Katie tries frantically to hold her family together while also finding herself drawn, irresistibly, to the crime itself, and the dark corners it threatens to illuminate.
Even though I didn't know what the final outcome would be exactly, I did guess some of it, and most important, I didn't enjoy the journey at all. This was my second attempt (first here) at reading this author. I just don't think she is for me. The narration was not pleasing either. Boo.
