Three months before she died Daina Harrow faced a bully at school.
Six weeks before she died Daina Harrow suffered an assault in the park.
One week before she died Daina Harrow stole a secret people had killed to hide.
That was ten years ago. Ten long years.
Now, her bones have been found on a building site. A coroner's inquest has been reopened. A parade of witnesses is about to start.
And Daina's here. Watching every day as her mother cries in the courtroom. Watching every day as her friends, and her enemies, and her killers lie about her on the stand.
Watching, and making sure that no matter what the coroner hears, you know the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
This was a great book. Because we watch what is happening and go back to learn more about Daina's past we get the whole story. It is creepy and sad at the same time knowing Daina is listening to the people lie. Those who mistreated her, or ignored and neglected her are there telling their story. Daina wants to make sure the reader knows the truth. I felt so sad that it took so long to learn what had happened to her.
I felt sorry for the life she had lived. I loved the ending and the twists that I had not expected. I would most definitely read more by this author. I will probably re-read this again and again.
