The Darkest Corners | Teenreads | Young Adult Novels | Scoop.it
Tessa left Fayette, Pennsylvania when she was nine and has been trying not to think about what happened there that last summer ever since. Callie never left. She moved to another house, so she doesn’t have to walk those same halls. Tessa and Callie have never talked about what they saw that night. After the trial, Callie drifted and Tessa moved, and they lost touch. But ever since she left, Tessa has had questions. And now she has to go back to Fayette --- to Wyatt Stokes, sitting on death row; to Lori Cawley, Callie’s dead cousin; and to the one other person who may be hiding the truth.
