They used to be best friends. Not anymore. Her family kept a secret, and so did he. What no one suspected: She was the secret.
My name is Lilly McGuire.
It’s been over two years, and I still have no clue why he stopped talking to me. He. My best friend.
Everything was great. Then, he left for football camp. When he came back, he pretended I didn’t exist, leaving a room every time I’d enter. Eventually, he stopped coming home altogether.
I moved on. Or so I thought.
Then, a journalism assignment makes me stumble across a ten-year-old case of missing girls. With every new article I find, I get pulled deeper into a world that makes me question everything I had believed to be the truth.
Then, they start: the migraines.
Just when I accept that I must be losing my mind, something unexpected happens. I have to make a choice that will determine not only my entire future but also his.
My name is Rhys McGuire.
My life is based on secrets, and two years ago, I was forced to make a choice. I stayed away, but I’ve kept watching.
Now, fate has thrown me a bone. The decision is mine again. Stay quiet or come clean? Continue the charade, or tell her everything that’s been tearing me apart since I was seven years old?
The choice is mine, but do I really have one? If she finds out, I could lose her forever. The ones she has trusted most are the ones that have betrayed her—maybe even beyond repair. I want to believe that she would forgive me, but could she move past all of the lies?
Trust Lilly and Rhys. Things may appear a certain way at first but most likely will not end up the way you expect. Keep reading.
