This secret is killing me.

It's only one line from her fifteen-year-old daughter's diary, but Susan knows it means everything. Charlotte is smart, popular, and beautiful. She is also in a coma following what looks like a desperate suicide attempt. What's more, Susan has no idea what compelled her daughter to step out in front of a city bus.

Did she really know her daughter at all? In her hunt for the truth, Susan begins to mistrust everyone close to Charlotte, and she's forced to look further, into the depths of her own past. The secrets hidden there may destroy them both.

"An ominous atmosphere, a tense tale of past and present colliding, and a narrator whom no one believes: this book is a delight." - Alex Marwood, author of The Wicked Girls "BEFORE I WAKE is a compelling novel about how people are able to gain strength and move forward with their lives...a great story that has mystery, drama, love, and determination." - Fresh Fiction "Stunning revelations from the past alternate with present-day chapters from the point of view of a woman named Susan. Although the years in the early '90s start as a blissful dream, they soon turn into a nightmare. Taylor has suspense down to a fine art." - RT Book Reviews "First-time author Taylor keeps the plot moving and knows how to layer on tension and bring it to a climax." - Library Journal
