    Summary

    A psychological thriller that follows two young women: Mercedes Jones, the popular girl with a charmed life who one day goes missing, and Rachel Berry, the nerdy wannabe who is accused of being connected to Mercedes’s disappearance. All signs point to Rachel’s guilt, but is Mercedes really who she seems to be? Set over three summers and told through shifting points of view, the story challenges perception and follows how one girl can go from being an outlier to the most despised person in America.

    Chapters will alternate between Rachel and Mercedes’s viewpoint.

    HUGE DISCLAIMER and TRIGGER WARNING for child grooming and domestic abuse. If this is not your jam, please skip.

    A mashup of Glee (2009-2015) and Cruel Summer (2021-present)
