Publisher's Summary

Maria Weston wants to be friends. But Maria Weston's dead. Isn't she?
Friend Request
It's 1989. When Louise first notices the new girl who has mysteriously transferred late into their senior year, Maria seems to be everything Louise's other friends aren't. Authentic. Funny. Brash. Within just a few days, Maria and Louise are on their way to becoming fast friends.
It's 2016. Louise receives a heart-stopping email: Maria Weston wants to be friends on Facebook. Long-buried memories quickly rise to the surface: those first days of their budding friendship; cruel decisions made and dark secrets kept; the night that would change all their lives forever.
Louise has always known that if the truth ever came out, she could stand to lose everything. Her job. Her son. Her freedom. Maria's sudden reappearance threatens it all and forces Louise to reconnect with everyone with whom she'd severed ties in order to escape the past. But as she tries to piece together exactly what happened that night, Louise discovers there's more to the story than she ever knew. To keep her secret, Louise must first uncover the whole truth, before what's known to Maria - or whoever is pretending to be her - is known to all.
With her mesmerizing debut, Laura Marshall offers a timely and essential story of how who we were shapes who we become, the hidden cost of our increasingly connected world, and the dangerous shape that revenge can take in our modern era.

What a Great Read!

The title of this book made me want to read, and I was hooked from the first word! The story moves along at a great pace, and events are revealed slowly enough to heighten tension and create suspense. Using social media to draw the reader in was very effective. I look forward to more books by this author. She really knows how to create real characters who experience conflict and difficulties, and exhibit amazing strength and patience. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves psychological thrillers, suspenseful plots, and just amazing reads in general. What a great listen!!!!

Do not accept this request!

I really enjoyed this book!
The narrator did a great job, and I will listen to her again.
This is a solid story that spans a lifetime of our main character Louise.
Louise becomes best pals with Maria in high school, but Maria ends up dead.
Then, as you know from reading the description, Louise gets a friend request from Maria years after her death.
Is Maria alive, and playing tricks? Is the murder coming out of the wood work to point fingers at Louise? Is Louise the murder? Or is someone else trying to make Louise miserable, and pay for what she did ?
Honestly, It is common for me to figure o.ut the"big twist" in a lot of novels.
I will admit, I had NO clue who killed Maria, and I had NO clue who our "bad guy" was.
This is a solid physiological thriller, that I would recommend to anyone.
The characters were real, likable, and flawed.
