March 2011, no. 329

Six people. Five seatbelts. Six teenagers involved in a horrific car crash. But who has died? After this reader-catching prologue, Karen Tayleur’s Six jumps backwards to follow the teenagers through half of their final year at high school. Sarah, though organised and dutiful, has doubts about her future career path. Her best friend, the possibly psychic Poppy, has recently added stressed-out athlete Nico to her long string of boyfriends. Sarah’s secret crush, Finn, and his long-term girlfriend Virginia have pretended to break up. And Cooper? Cooper’s just creepy. One summer day, a discovery in the woods and a few bad choices link five of the six teenagers. School, relationships, license tests, upcoming exams and parties dominate their everyday lives, but the memory of that day remains. And when Nico starts to receive anonymous I Know What You Did Last Summer-style text messages, he realises that a sixth person shares knowledge of their secret.
