9781595143532: Rosebush

Instead of celebrating Memorial Day weekend on the Jersey Shore, Jane is in the hospital surrounded by teddy bears, trying to piece together what happened last night. One minute she was at a party, wearing fairy wings and cuddling with her boyfriend. The next, she was lying near-dead in a rosebush after a hit-and-run.

Everyone believes it was an accident, despite the phone threats Jane swears were real. But the truth is a thorny thing. As Jane's boyfriend, friends, and admirers come to visit, more memories surface-not just from the party, but from deeper in her past . . . including the night her best friend Bonnie died.

With nearly everyone in her life a suspect now, Jane must unravel the mystery before her killer attacks again. Along the way, she's forced to examine the consequences of her life choices in this compulsively readable thriller.

From Booklist:

Beautiful, popular Jane Freeman awakens in the hospital with no memory of what happened the night she was struck by a hit-and-run driver. Thrown by the collision into a rosebush, Jane is unable to move or speak. As mobility and memories begin to return, Jane realizes that someone has tried to kill her, and it has to be someone she knows well. The fact that no one believes the threats she is receiving complicates the thorny puzzle. Compulsively readable, the novel bristles with red herrings, leading readers down one tempting plot branch after another, each one blooming with plausibility. The characters are skillfully cultivated through flashbacks, and the insecure, people-pleasing Jane grows believably as she takes on the mystery. Jaffe has an especially deft hand with teen dialogue, and clues are organically revealed as each friend visits the hospital room. The motivation of the perpetrator is a stretch, but the revelation provides rich soil for discussion. A sure bet for teen mystery fans. Grades 8-12. --Lynn Rutan
