Litigation lawyer and harried single mother Kate Baron is shocked when her daughter''s exclusive Brooklyn private school calls to tell her that Amelia-her intelligent, high-achieving fifteen-year-old-has been caught cheating. But when Kate arrives at Grace Hall, she''s blindsided by far more devastating news: Amelia is dead. Despondent, she''s jumped from the school''s roof. At least that''s what Grace Hall and the police tell Kate. It''s what she believes, too, until she gets the anonymous text: Amelia didn''t jump. Now, Kate is going to find the truth-no matter where it leads. Sifting through Amelia''s e-mails, text messages, and Facebook posts, Kate reconstructs the pieces of her daughter''s life and the people in it, uncovering why she was on Grace Hall''s roof that day-and how she died.

A superb blend of Tana French and Jodi Picoult, Reconstructing Amelia is a story of secrets and lies, friends and bullies. It''s about how well any parent really knows their child and how far one mother will go to vindicate the memory of a daughter whose life she could not save.
