[To be published through Wattpad Books on September 17th 2019] No one knows why Emily Porterfield murdered Griffin Tomlin that night. No one except for her younger sister, Clara, anyway.

Nothing has been the same for Clara since the night of the Tomlins' annual Super Bowl Party but things take a drastic turn in the middle of September when her older sister, Emily, murders Clara's longtime crush, Griffin Tomlin, in his backyard. No one, not even their parents or older sister Nora, can understand why Emily would want to murder anyone, let alone Griffin Tomlin. No one except for Clara, who blames herself for revealing a secret she swore Griffin she would never tell. 

As she attempts to navigate through this new life, without Emily or Griffin, while watching as what remains of her family falls apart, she finds friendship with Aniston Hale, a pink-obsessed girl determined to learn why Emily killed Griffin that night, and Kolby Rutledge, Griffin's best friend, and she tries to find a way to forgive both Emily and herself for what happened that night.
