Litigation lawyer and harried single mother Kate Baron is shocked when her daughter's exclusive Brooklyn private school calls to tell her that Amelia—her intelligent, high-achieving fifteen-year-old—has been caught cheating. But when Kate arrives at Grace Hall, she's blindsided by far more devastating news: Amelia is dead. Despondent, she's jumped from the school's roof. At least that's what Grace Hall and the police tell Kate. It's what she believes, too, until she gets the anonymous text: Amelia didn't jump. Now, Kate is going to find the truth—no matter where it leads. Sifting through Amelia's e-mails, text messages, and Facebook posts, Kate reconstructs the pieces of her daughter's life and the people in it, uncovering why she was on Grace Hall's roof that day—and how she died.

A superb blend of Tana French and Jodi Picoult, Reconstructing Amelia is a story of secrets and lies, friends and bullies. It's about how well any parent really knows their child and how far one mother will go to vindicate the memory of a daughter whose life she could not save.


Editorial Reviews

Jennifer McMahon
“McCreight captures the complexities, cruelty and angst of teenage girls so well my stomach was in knots. What really happened to Amelia? You’ll find yourself staying up all night to find out.”

    Because there are 176 definitions for the word loser on
    Don't Be a Statistic
    Hey bitches!
    Ah, the beginning of another school year. And I'm back with all the shit
    that's not fit to print . . .
    So while you've all been whiling away the summer in Southampton,
    or on Nantucket or in the South of France, perfecting your tennis game or
    your pas de deux, or training for your first marathon, or basking in your
    latest chess championship, I've spent the summer keeping track of the back
    and forth of our dear faculty members. Mr. Zaritski went out to UC Berke-
    ley to teach at a science camp for crazy- smart kids. Word has it the parents
    had him fired week two because he SMELLED. Mrs. Pearl took a Latin lover
    and learned to pole dance in Miami. Kidding. She didn't actually have a
    lover, of course. Who would ever want to sleep with her?
    Ah, and sweet delicious Mr. Woodhouse. Who wouldn't have wanted
    to see him in a Speedo somewhere? Alas, his whereabouts lo these sultry
    months is unknown, though I have it on good authority that he spent at
    least one long weekend snuggled up with our beloved English prof Liv. To
    which I say, bravo.

    As for all of you, I'll be covering a summer wrap- up as the updates flow
    in over the next few days— and do send them along to gracefullyblog@ Because here we are, another year where every loser has the
    chance to finally be cool and the fat kids might turn up skinny.
    And the same old questions: Will lovely little Dylan ever come clean
    about who she's screwing? Will Heather and Rachel ever admit they're
    screwing each other? Will Zadie stay out of jail long enough to gradu-
    ate? Which senior girl will our resident sophomore hottie Carter sleep with
    first? And who is this Ian Greene and is he as sizzlin' as his meet book pic-
    tures suggest? Outlook doubtful says my own personal eight ball. But y'all
    will be the first to know.
    In the meantime, keep those new shoes shiny and those smiles bright.
    And buckle up. Because it's going to be one hell of a ride . . .
