“This was an oddly addicting and hypnotizing listen. It's so character driven about female friendships and competition (bc sometimes, competition pushes us to be better). The narrator was fantastic. She hooked me in with her telling and I just wanted Kit to succeed. This is my first Megan Abbott book but I suspect it won't be my last.”Audrey, Belmont Books
Shortlisted for the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award A life-changing secret destroys an unlikely friendship in this "magnetic" (Meg Wolitzer) psychological thriller from the Edgar Award-winning author of Dare Me.
You told each other everything. Then she told you too much.
Kit has risen to the top of her profession and is on the brink of achieving everything she wanted. She hasn't let anything stop her.
But now someone else is standing in her way - Diane. Best friends at seventeen, their shared ambition made them inseparable. Until the day Diane told Kit her secret - the worst thing she'd ever done, the worst thing Kit could imagine - and it blew their friendship apart.
Kit is still the only person who knows what Diane did. And now Diane knows something about Kit that could destroy everything she's worked so hard for.
How far would Kit go, to make the hard work, the sacrifice, worth it in the end? What wouldn't she give up? Diane thinks Kit is just like her. Maybe she's right. Ambition: it's in the blood . . .
