When lawyer Kate Baron gets a call saying that her star-student teenage daughter has been suspended for cheating, she is shocked. But that's nothing compared to what happens when she arrives at the school and is told that Amelia has committed suicide.
Kate can't believe her daughter would have thrown herself off the roof, and when she receives an anonymous text claiming it wasn't a suicide, she embarks on a mission to uncover the truth behind her daughter's tragic end.
Kimberly McCreight creates a thoroughly contemporary novel in Reconstructing Amelia. The chapters switch perspectives from Kate to Amelia while text messages and Facebook posts shed light on the hours and minutes just before Amelia's death. Center stage is the relationship between mother and daughter and the secrets they both shared and kept.
