EDGAR AWARD WINNER
 
For fans of Gillian Flynn, Caroline Cooney, and R.L. Stine comes The Other Side of Dark from four-time Edgar Allen Poe Young Adult Mystery Award winner Joan Lowery Nixon.
 
        Stacy wakes up in a hospital room, in a body she doesn’t recognize. Her mother is dead—murdered—and Stacy is recovering from a gunshot wound. She is the sole eyewitness to the crime, but she has only a shadowy memory of the killer’s face. Will Stacy be able to regain a clear memory of that fateful day before the killer reaches her?
        The Other Side of Dark is one of Joan Lowery Nixon’s most intriguing, suspenseful, and dramatic mysteries.
 
“The compelling premise…and Nixon’s mastery of suspense are gripping.” –Publishers Weekly
 
“Tense and dramatic…[The Other Side of Dark has a] quick pace, and the determined protagonist should attract and hold readers.” –School Library Journal

The ebook version is riddled with mistakes. It's like they scanned the text but didn't check it-- Jeff is often spelled JeflF. I'm is often written Fm. Random mistakes and marks make the book confusing to read.

it was too short and hard to follow. it had many spelling and grammar issues. was not worth the money.

this was a great book. stacy, age 17, suddenly comes out of a coma which she had been in for 4 years. she thinks she's 13 and has a lot to get used to. She was in a coma because she got shot. at the same time, her mother was murdered. stacy feels like she needs to identify the murderer and have him punished for what he did. it seems like the murderer's identity is always just out of reach for her. and the killer is not about to let her reveal his identity.

The other side of dark is a great book to read because it has a twist to it and a little bit of a shock to the ending.
