While on vacation, a young Harvard student is arrested for the murder of her twin sister in the astounding psychological thriller, She Fell by Wendy Weiss. Twin sisters Emily and Jessica possess different personalities, to the point of being opposites. After their thirteenth birthdays, their diversity became more glaringly obvious. Where Jess was beautiful, sweet, and outgoing, Em was androgynous, temperamental, and introverted. During college break, the two sisters traveled to the Grand Canyon, and while taking selfies, Jess disappeared. Arrested for Jess's murder and held without bail, Em is encouraged by her parents, legal counsel, and her psychiatrist to plead guilty by insanity. Despite her compliance, Em is found guilty of murder and sent to federal prison. Unable to convince anyone of her innocence and having nothing better to do, Em records her story in notebooks. While in solitary confinement, she begins to experience hallucinations that shake her to her core. With the combination of her faulty memories, psychiatrist, and ghostly visitations, Em feels as if she is cracking up. Were the prosecutor and jury correct? Did she murder her sister?
A chilling view into a young woman's tortured mind is vividly portrayed in the gripping psychological thriller, She Fell by Wendy Weiss. Rivaling an Alfred Hitchcock tale, the story contains a psychologically complex protagonist and a suspenseful and disturbing plot with an unexpected twist. It is a thrilling story where the tension and suspense evolve and build into a surprising and unanticipated conclusion. Written in the form of a memoir, ascertaining and understanding the main character, Em's troubled psyche is fascinating. The further I got into the book, the more unsettling and heart-breaking Em's story became. Once my interest was captured, I couldn't put the story aside until I knew Em's final outcome. It is an extraordinary book that will thrill those who enjoy novels with the elements of mystery, drama, and a questionable sense of reality.
