Synopsis
"A GRIPPING NOVEL." New York Times Book Review 

When her children's school is set ablaze, Grace runs into the burning building to rescue her teenage daughter, Jenny. In the aftermath, badly injured, Grace learns the police have identified the arsonist, but they have blamed the wrong person. Only Detective Sarah McBride, the sister-in-law Grace has never liked, is searching for the real arsonist--a hunt that becomes urgent when it's clear Jenny is still the perpetrator's target.
   Page-turning suspense combines with a beautiful portrayal of deep family bonds to make this a stunning and riveting read.

Now with Extra Libris material, including a reader’s guide and bonus content
Amazon.com Review
Amazon Best Books of the Month, April 2012: After Grace drags her teenage daughter, Jenny, from the inferno that engulfs her school, they awake in the hospital and find themselves outside of their damaged bodies. Only they can see or hear each other, a state that becomes more agonizing once Graze realizes that the police are calling the case closed, while whoever set the blaze still wants Jenny dead. Fiercely determined to protect her daughter, aching to bring comfort to her husband and son, Grace races to find the perpetrator and make them known. Like Lupton’s celebrated debut, Sister--an Amazon editors’ pick for a Best Books of 2011--this twisty, inventive thriller delivers a powerful portrayal of a woman’s love for family transcending all boundaries. –Mari Malcolm
