Eliza Fontaine is an author whose first book, The Dots, is about to be released. A few years ago, she had a brain tumour that made her believe someone was chasing her and caused her to jump into the water, even though she didn't know how to swim. So when she is found unconscious in a hotel pool, her family thinks her tumour has returned, despite her protests that someone pushed her. Since no one seems to believe her, Eliza starts to investigate on her own but soon her real life blends with the fictional life of the protagonist of her book and Eliza doesn't know who or what to believe anymore.
The plot is twisty and suspenseful and the characters are engaging and well-developed. I was first drawn to this novel because it's written by the author of Pretty Little Liars of which I am a fan. But I only really got into this book about halfway through. I don't know why it took me so long but once I was in, I was completely captivated. (NP)
