Description-

  • "When it comes to YA suspense, Karen M. McManus is in a league of her own. Fresh off her best-selling breakout One of Us Is Lying . . . the author has returned with a juicy second novel. It's even better than what came before." —EW
    The New York Times bestselling "must-read YA thriller" (Bustle) from the author of One of Us Is Lying!

    Echo Ridge is small-town America. Ellery's never been there, but she's heard all about it. Her aunt went missing there at age seventeen. And only five years ago, a homecoming queen put the town on the map when she was killed. Now Ellery has to move there to live with a grandmother she barely knows.
    The town is picture-perfect, but it's hiding secrets. And before school even begins for Ellery, someone has declared open season on homecoming, promising to make it as dangerous as it was five years ago. Then, almost as if to prove it, another girl goes missing.
    Ellery knows all about secrets. Her mother has them; her grandmother does too. And the longer she's in Echo Ridge, the clearer it becomes that everyone there is hiding something. The thing is, secrets are dangerous—and most people aren't good at keeping them. Which is why in Echo Ridge, it's safest to keep your secrets to yourself.

Excerpts-

  • From the cover Ellery

    Friday, August 30

    If I believed in omens, this would be a bad one.

    There's only one suitcase left on the baggage carousel. It's bright pink, covered with Hello Kitty stickers, and definitely not mine.

    My brother, Ezra, watches it pass us for the fourth time, leaning on the handle of his own oversized suitcase. The crowd around the carousel is nearly gone, except for a couple arguing about who was supposed to keep track of their rental car reservation. "Maybe you should take it," Ezra suggests. "Seems like whoever owns it wasn't on our flight, and I bet they have an interesting wardrobe. A lot of polka dots, probably. And glitter." His phone chimes, and he pulls it out of his pocket. "Nana's outside."

    "I can't believe this," I mutter, kicking the toe of my sneaker against the carousel's metal side. "My entire life was in that suitcase."

    It's a slight exaggeration. My actual entire life was in La Puente, California, until about eight hours ago. Other than a few boxes shipped to Vermont last week, the suitcase contains what's left.

    "I guess we should report it." Ezra scans the baggage claim area, running a hand over his close-cropped hair. He used to have thick dark curls like mine, hanging in his eyes, and I still can't get used to the cut he got over the summer. He tilts his suitcase and pivots toward the information desk. "Over here, probably."

    The skinny guy behind the desk looks like he could still be in high school, with a rash of red pimples dotting his cheeks and jawline. A gold name tag pinned crookedly to his blue vest reads "Andy." Andy's thin lips twist when I tell him about my suitcase, and he cranes his neck toward the Hello Kitty bag still making carousel laps. "Flight 5624 from Los Angeles? With a layover in Charlotte?" I nod. "You sure that's not yours?"

    "Positive."

    "Bummer. It'll turn up, though. You just gotta fill this out." He yanks open a drawer and pulls out a form, sliding it toward me. "There's a pen around here somewhere," he mutters, pawing half-heartedly through a stack of papers.

    "I have one." I unzip the front of my backpack, pulling out a book that I place on the counter while I feel around for a pen. Ezra raises his brows when he sees the battered hardcover.

    "Really, Ellery?" he asks. "You brought In Cold Blood on the plane? Why didn't you just ship it with the rest of your books?"

    "It's valuable," I say defensively.

    Ezra rolls his eyes. "You know that's not Truman Capote's actual signature. Sadie got fleeced."

    "Whatever. It's the thought that counts," I mutter. Our mother bought me the "signed" first edition off eBay after she landed a role as Dead Body #2 on Law & Order four years ago. She gave Ezra a Sex Pistols album cover with a Sid Vicious autograph that was probably just as forged. We should've gotten a car with reliable brakes instead, but Sadie's never been great at long-term planning. "Anyway, you know what they say. When in Murderland . . ." I finally extract a pen and start scratching my name across the form.

    "You headed for Echo Ridge, then?" Andy asks. I pause on the second c of my last name and he adds, "They don't call it that anymore, you know. And you're early. It doesn't open for another week."

    "I know. I didn't mean the theme park. I meant the . . ." I trail off before saying town and shove In Cold Blood into my bag. "Never mind," I say, returning my attention to the form. "How long does it usually take to get your stuff back?"

    "Shouldn't...

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine From the bestselling author of ONE OF US IS LYING comes a new thriller, beautifully narrated by Sophie Amoss and Kirby Heyborne. Ellery and her brother, Ezra, move to the quiet rural town of Echo Ridge, Vermont, where a past homecoming queen was murdered five years earlier. When homecoming season arrives again, another girl goes missing. Other secrets of Echo Ridge surface as Ellery uncovers the connection between the town and her own family's unfortunate history. Amoss and Heyborne make the siblings shine amid an otherwise dreary cast. Most noteworthy is Amoss's success in capturing Ellery's development from an apathetic teenager to a strong and resourceful young lady. G.M. � AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine
