During the most important meeting of her career, single mother Kate Baron is summoned to pick up her daughter from the exclusive Park Slope private school she attends. Fifteen-year-old Amelia has been suspended, but when Kate arrives at St. Grace, she finds a scene far worse than she could have ever imagined. Despondent over having been accused of cheating, Amelia has jumped to her death from the school''s roof. At least that''s the story St. Grace tells Kate. And it is the one Kate believes. That is until she gets an anonymous text:

She didn''t jump.

Told from Kate and Amelia''s alternating points of view, as well as Amelia''s e-mails, texts and Facebook posts, Reconstructing Amelia tells the story of why Amelia was on St. Grace''s roof that day. And how she ended up plunging to her death.

This is a story of secret first loves, old friendships and an all-girls club steeped in mean girl tradition. It''s about having the strength to accept your own truth, even when the people you trust betray you. But most of all, Reconstructing Amelia is the story of how far a mother will go to vindicate the memory of a daughter whose life she couldn''t save.
