A twisting, puzzling scavenger hunt of a mystery
Ava Antipova had reasons for running away: failing family vineyard, romantic betrayal, mercurial sister, absent father, mother slipping into dementia. But two years later, she must return to upstate New York. Her twin sister, Zelda, is dead.
Zelda, notorious for her mind games and destructive behavior, was allegedly burned alive. Then Ava receives a cryptic message-from her sister. Just as Ava suspected, Zelda's playing one of her games, leaving a series of clues to her disappearance. Ava follows the trail, thinking like her sister, immersing herself in Zelda's drama, forcing Ava to confront their twisted history and the boy who broke her heart. But why?
This debut takes readers on a puzzle-filled literary scavenger hunt for clues.
