Sixteen-year-old Allie and her two best friends, Rob and Juliet, cannot be outside during the day because they suffer life-threatening allergies to sunlight. Instead, they are out at night, looking for adventure on the quiet streets of their town. They take up the dangerous (but thrilling) sport of Parkour, which involves running and scaling tall buildings and other obstacles.

One summer night the three friends are climbing an apartment building when they happen to glance in a window. They are shocked to witness the murder of a young woman. Unfortunately, the murderer also sees them.

Life suddenly becomes very dangerous, especially for Allie who becomes obsessed with investigating what appears to be a series of murders. Is a serial killer responsible? Allie believes so, and a treacherous game of cat and mouse ensues. Then Juliet disappears.

Mitchard’s mystery thriller is a masterpiece, interwoven with dark undertones and subplots, such as the changing relationship of the three teens.

The end of this gripping story leaves some loose ends because there is a sequel, What We Lost in the Dark.

Jacquelyn Mitchard is also the author of The Deep End of the Ocean and No Time to Say Goodbye.
