I Know You Remember by Jennifer Donaldson
Talk about a PLOT TWIST. We won’t give anything away, but I Know You Remember revolves around a missing person case that gets real wild real fast. Ruthie’s best friend Zahra vanished without a trace.

People Like Us by Dana Mele
We LOVE a boarding school murder mystery. Kay Donovan may have skeletons in her closet, but the past is past, and she’s reinvented herself entirely. But when a girl’s body is found in the lake, Kay’s carefully constructed life begins to topple. The dead girl has left Kay a computer-coded scavenger hunt, which, as it unravels, begins to implicate suspect after suspect, until Kay herself is in the crosshairs of a murder investigation. But if Kay’s finally backed into a corner, she’ll do what it takes to survive. Because at Bates Academy, the truth is something you make…not something that happened.

Cole Weston—former friend, former boyfriend—has become dangerous, erratic. Something needs to be done. Getting rid of Cole is practically a public service.

Everything is perfect, until the meme appears. It’s a screenshot from their confession… a confession that’s supposed to be entombed with Cole forever in the cold Vermont dirt.
