TW: Sexual Assault, Cutting

Jenna has spent the last twenty-five years trying to forget what happened to her as a teenager. Trying to forget what they did.

But it has always been there – the mistake the four friends made.

Now it has taken another life, Jenna has the opportunity to make amends. But if she comes forward now, the truth could shatter her marriage, her family and the friendships she’s held onto all these years.

And what if she’s about to make the biggest mistake of all?

Addictive, chilling and twisting, WHAT WE DID is the brand-new psychological suspense from bestselling author of BELIEVE ME NOT. For fans of LUCKIEST GIRL ALIVE, THE LYING GAME and THE PROMISE.

This book started out a little slow for me, and then it picked up and I couldn’t put it down! While the book is told entirely in Jenna’s point of view, we get her point of view in the present and in the past. The chapters are short, and easy to read. While this is a thriller, and Chandler does keep you wondering as to what happened, there is more to this book than just the thriller aspect. It touches on the effects of being sexually assaulted. How a person can hold onto it throughout their life, and how it affects relationships later in life. While I have never been in this situation, I was able to feel empathetic toward Jenna. Moreover, the ending will have you on the edge of your seat. I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys thriller books!
