Rosebush by Michele Jaffe

Jane has always wanted to fit in. She wanted to be a part of the popular crowd and have friends to count on. When she moved to a new school and found one of the popular girls crying in the bathroom, she instantly became "one of them".

After a party gone wrong, though, Jane wakes up in the hospital temporarily paralyzed and mute from a hit and run.

Jane can't remember anything. She has a feeling that one of her friends did this to her, but her mind is only coming back in pieces. After talking to her boyfriend, friends, and random visitors, he memory slowly comes back - but nothing makes sense.

On top of that, Jane is getting gifts from a "Secret Admirer" and seeing things, getting random, unknown calls from the person who is going to come back and finished what they started.

No one will believe Jane when she says the murderer is coming back for her. They already found a suspect in which they had Jane's purse and phone, so the case was closed.

The more Jane's memory comes back, the more she is remembering, and hopefully, can figure out the person who tried to kill her before it's too late.

My Thoughts/Reflections
This was a great book! Jane struggles through the whole book to figure out what had happened that night at the party while also trying to keep her sanity, and proving to everyone that she is sane as well.

Throughout the whole book I kept trying to figure out who the suspect would be. I didn't guess until the very end right before it was revealed, but even then Michele Jaffe tried to trick me. She will literally keep you guessing who the killer is until the last few pages.

Jane is one tough cookie. She wakes up, can't move, can't talk, and she still tries to fight against what happened to her to figure out who would do something horrible to her. She knows it's one of her friends with the little she remembers from the night of the party, but not enough to remotely remember who ran her over.

I would recommend this to any reader because, while there are random love interests in here, this is mainly about finding out who hit Jane and why - it's a mystery that I think anyone would want to read and try to solve the mystery before Jane does herself!
