Publisher's Summary

A gripping, thought-provoking and intriguing novel about murder, death row, and how a life can change in a heartbeat. An irresistible listen for those who loved We Need to Talk About Kevin.
At just 25, Noa P. Singleton was confined to death row for the murder of Sarah Dixon. For nearly 10 years she has languished there, and in six months she will be executed. It's a fate she has long resigned herself to. But the victim's mother, Marlene, has other plans.
With little time remaining, she visits Noa, intent upon invoking a clemency appeal. What can have prompted this change of heart? And how and why did Noa kill Sarah Dixon?
As Noa tells her story, an unapologetic tale of love, anguish, and deception emerges that is as unpredictable as its narrator. And two women, linked by murder but with very different goals, wait with growing tension for the final decision on Noa's fate.

Great concept but I lost interest at some points

The concept was good and the twist at the end well thought out. I found Noa tried a bit too hard to be 'cool' and the story lapsed a bit sometimes which was where I lost interest. Characters quite well developed and narration good. I expected a different ending so when I got to the end it was a surprise.
