Keep your Friends Close is a great YA thriller for many ages in that range. It has such a relatable and well-written style that readers are sure to enjoy and find intriguing. The plot is fascinating and really does capture the dramas and feelings of high school while adding in the mystery of the murder of a small-town girl. All of the characters are unique and leaves the reader wondering who could have killed a seemingly perfect girl. The only flaw in the entire novel was the occasional circular plot point. I highly recommend this book, it had me on the edge of my seat and I really enjoyed it! -Amazon Review
Maggie Brennan cannot stop thinking about the dead girl.
The small, midwestern town of Masonville is Maggie’s thirteenth home, but nothing in it is really hers. Her friends, her locker, even the guy she likes all seem to belong to someone Maggie can never know. Gradually, she tries so hard to fit in that she accidentally becomes more and more like the girl everyone is missing, while who Maggie really is and where she comes from remains a mystery, partially even to Maggie.
She has only ever known life traveling with her mom, a PI; no dad, no baby pictures, no social media. Almost a ghost herself, Maggie gets caught up in trying to solve the mystery of this girl’s death.
As she begins to suspect some of her new friends may know more about “the accident”, unbeknownst to her someone begins to suspect her too. In the end, secrets will come out, including the truth about exactly who Maggie is and is not.
