A 2017 Independent Publisher Book Award Gold Medal Winner!Her father died before she was born, but Ella Benton knows they have a supernatural connection. But when newfound evidence suggests that Ella’s mother might be lying about how Dad died sixteen years ago, Ella begins to question everything she knows about her father—and herself. If Ella’s father lived the last days of his life in a psychiatric hospital, he couldn’t have died in a tragic car accident, as her mother always claimed.When a handprint much like the one Ella left on her father’s tombstone mysteriously appears on the bathroom mirror, at first she wonders if Dad is warning her of danger, as he did once before. If it’s not a warning, could her new, too-good-to-be-true boyfriend be responsible for the strange occurrences? Or maybe it’s the building superintendent, who’s mourning a daughter who looked like Ella? As the unexplained events become more frequent and more sinister, Ella finds herself terrified about who—or what—might harm her.Soon the evidence points to someone else entirely: Ella herself. What if, like her father, she’s suffering a mental breakdown? In this acclaimed novel from award-winning author Yvonne Ventresca, Ella desperately needs to find answers—no matter how disturbing the truth might be.
