Keeping secrets ruined her life. But the truth might just kill her.
Piper Woods can't wait for the purgatory of senior year to end. She skirts the fringes of high school like a pro until the morning she finds a notebook with mutilated photographs and a list of student sins. She's sure the book is too gruesome to be true, until pretty, popular Stella dies after a sex-tape goes viral. Everyone's sure it's suicide, but Piper remembers Stella's name from the book and begins to suspect something much worse.
Drowning in secrets she doesn't want to keep, Piper's fears are confirmed when she receives an anonymous text message daring her to make things right. All she needs to do is choose a name, the name of someone who deserves to be punished...
A message comes into my phone, a startling buzz against my leg that makes me smile.
It’s him. Or her. I don’t really know, I guess, and I don’t care. This total stranger is officially my freaking hero. I read the message waiting for me.
How’s that for justice?
I laugh out loud, but when I move to text back, my hands still shake, fumbling over every letter.
Tastes pretty sweet.
Get good pictures?
I scroll through them on my camera, admiring every shot. There’s one of my target’s face, his white teeth obviously clenched between his lips. Yeah, they’re good. Really good.
I let my camera drop down on the strap around my neck. Yes, I’ve got them.
Good. Now you can make your own little book. Or add to the original if you like.
My laugh isn’t so quick this time. I don’t really like this part, this undeniable reminder that while he’s a stranger to me, he knows exactly who I am. But I guess if I have his book, we’re both even in a way.
Another text arrives, jarring me. So, what’s next?
I bite my lip and look around, though of course no one’s here. I sink to one of the cold steps and tap out a reply. Hasn’t he suffered enough?
Unlikely. But how about someone else?
Worry nags at the back of my mind. I could be caught. Another text comes in, one that seems to read my mind.
Come on, Piper. This is bigger than Jackson. We could change things. Make it better.
