After six people are shot at a small town community theater, people gather to attend the funeral of one of the victims: seventeen-year-old Stefia. As those who knew Stefia best privately share their memories of her, we discover a collective picture of a girl everyone loved but no one really knew.

Who was Stefia? Who knew her best? And why was she targeted in the shooting?

"The author doesn’t shy away from exploring the good, the bad, and the ugly in all of us. The raw, gritty Truth with a capitol T of the characters is as compelling as it is honest. I highly, highly recommend this book. It sticks with you."

"Shay Ray Stevens doesn't write Every Other Book; her story-telling style is one of the most original I've come across in a long time. In this psychological thriller, she lines up the witnesses to a mass murder and lets the reader piece together the broken bits of truth that each character knows. It's beautiful, genius, and thought-provoking. Read. This. Book."

"Things are certainly not what they seem as each chapter reveals only a sliver of Stefia's life and personality; just enough so you think you've solved the least until the next chapter when a new, delicious tidbit is revealed."
