Kimberly McCreight - Amelia
Kate ​Baront, a peres ügyvédet és gyermekét egyedül nevelő zaklatott édesanyát megrendíti, amikor a lánya exkluzív brooklyni magániskolájából azzal a hírrel hívják fel, hogy Ameliát - az ő intelligens, kitűnően teljesítő tizenöt éves lányát - csaláson kapták. Ám amikor Kate megérkezik a Grace Hallba, váratlanul egy ennél messze letaglózóbb hírrel kell szembesülnie: Amelia meghalt. Elkeseredésében levetette magát az iskolaépület tetejéről. Legalábbis ezt közli Kate-tel a Grace Hall és a rendőrség. És ő ebben a hitben él mindaddig, amíg egy névtelen üzenetet nem kap: Amelia nem ugrott le. Kate ezek után ki akarja deríteni az igazságot - nem számít, hová vezet. Amelia e-mailjeit, SMS-üzeneteit és facebookos bejegyzéseit böngészgetve rekonstruálja lánya életének darabkáit meg a benne szereplőket, és fényt derít arra, hogy mit is keresett aznap a Grace Hall tetején - és hogyan halt meg. Az Amelia titkok és hazugságok, barátok és piszkálódások története. Arról szól, hogy mennyire ismerheti jól egy szülő a gyerekét, és hogy egy anya milyen messze hajlandó elmenni annak érdekében, hogy megőrizze a lánya emlékét, akinek az életét megmenteni nem tudta.
