    Reconstructing Amelia

    Posted on 12/12/2013 by David Reynolds in Reconstructing Amelia

    Kate Baron is an attorney and single mother to 15 year-old- Amelia. She receives a phone call from her daughter's private school that Amelia has been suspended for cheating, and Kate must come to the school immediately. Kate is beyond confused: Amelia is an exemplary student. Kate's confusion soon turns to horror when she arrives at Amelia's school and discovers a crime scene riddled with police. Where is Amelia? Amid the chaos, Kate learns that it was Amelia that fell from the roof of the school in an apparent suicide. Kate can't believe what the authorities and the school has told her about Amelia's death. To further her suspicion, she receives an anonymous text that says Amelia didn't jump. Determined to learn the truth, Kate searches through Amelia's computer and phone messages to learn more about her daughter's life. Talk about thought provoking! This book will definitely get the dialogue going about social media and the relationship between parents and their children.
