Neverworld Wake

Marisha Pessl

Pessl’s YA debut is a psychological thriller set in a compelling and nightmarish world that will keep readers on the edge of their seats until the very end. A year after graduation, Beatrice Hartley has returned to her hometown where she's arranged an awkward reunion of her old friends. She hopes to discover what they might know about the mysterious death of her boyfriend Jim. But things don't go as planned and after a near-fatal car accident, the teens are transported to the Neverworld, a place between life and death where the same day is replayed over and over again and only one of them will escape the endless loop. Caught between trying to save her life and solving Jim's murder, Beatrice discovers that everyone has a devastating secret.
