Get ready to be transported into a riveting psychological thriller that will leave you breathless! The USA Today bestselling author of Baby Teeth brings you a gripping tale of a mother and daughter quarantined together during a pandemic.
Grace has never had a great relationship with her mother, Jackie. So when Jackie, newly widowed, asks to move in with her, Grace isn’t exactly thrilled. She likes her space, and being stuck at home during a pandemic only exacerbates that feeling. However, she needs help with the mortgage after losing her job, so she reluctantly agrees to let her mother move in with her.
At first, Grace and Jackie try to make the best of the situation, hoping it will be a chance to bond and support each other. But soon enough, old wounds start to fester, and new ones open up. As tensions mount, Grace begins to have nightmares about her disabled twin sister, who died when they were children. Meanwhile, Jackie discovers that Grace has been secretly catfishing people online—a hobby that Jackie finds unforgivable.
Jackie makes an earth-shattering accusation against Grace that turns her world upside down. Grace sees it as an act of revenge and spirals into a sleep-deprived madness. She becomes increasingly paranoid and loses the sense of what’s real and what’s not. As the walls of their quarantine start to close in, Grace’s past collides with a chilling new threat.
With each passing day, Grace’s mental state deteriorates, and the claustrophobic atmosphere becomes almost too much to bear. As she struggles to maintain her sanity, she’s haunted by the ghosts of her past, including memories of her sister and her dysfunctional relationship with her mother.
As tensions reach boiling point and danger looms closer, Grace realizes that the biggest threat she faces is the one she’s been living with all along—her own mother.
Will she be able to find a way out of this nightmarish situation, or will she be trapped forever in a world of her own making? Find out in this gripping psychological thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end!
