Mallory killed her boyfriend. She can’t remember how or why. Although no one was there when it happened, everyone said she did it in self-defense. It must be true because Brian had a history of violent behavior, so Mallory was found innocent. Unfortunately, Mallory feels like everyone around her doesn’t trust her, including her own parents. Plus, she can just feel Brian all around her.
When her parents tell her they are sending her away to Monroe, the prep school that her father attended, Mallory thinks this just might be what she needs to make a fresh start. She may even be able to snap out of it and remember what happened that night. But once she gets there and realizes that her reputation has preceded her, she starts to think that maybe starting over isn’t all that easy. And then, she wakes up to the dean’s son dead in her room and she has no recollection as to how. Can this really be happening again?!?
