With Malice, by Eileen CookRead about another entry on the list.
Lies and deception abound in this tale of a senior class trip to Italy gone horribly wrong. Jill and Simone are best friends. They’ve known each other since fourth grade. They’re inseparable. The trip to Montepulciano was supposed to broaden their horizons, give Jill a little life experience before she heads to Yale in the fall. Instead, Jill wakes up from a coma six weeks later. Her best friend is dead, Jill can’t remember anything, and no one knows what happened. As her memories return in tantalizing fragments, she’s bombarded with questions from professionals, from her family, and from the fascinated public: Was it an accident that killed Simone? Or anything but? And the big kahuna: Is Jill a murderer? Told through a combination of Jill’s narration, transcripts, Facebook statuses, emails, and more, this is a tense psychological thriller.
