One Moment Synopsis

It was supposed to be the best summer of Maggie's life. Now it's the one she'd do anything to forget.

Maggie remembers hanging out at the gorge with her closest friends after a party the night before. She remembers climbing the path hand in hand with her perfect boyfriend, Joey. She remembers his hand in hers as they ready themselves to jump into the glistening water below. But something goes terribly wrong. Joey jumps alone, hitting his head on the way down. When Maggie looks down into the gorge he lies motionless, dead.
Something happened at the top of the gorge but Maggie can’t remember what. As she struggles to come to terms with Joey’s death and her memory loss, people start to wonder - what really went on at the top of the rock? And why did he jump alone?

One Moment Press Reviews

"Good, solid drama about the power of secrets to test the bounds of friendship, with just enough tension to satisfy teen readers."—Kirkus Reviews

 

"McBride skillfully interweaves Maggie’s flashes of memory with present action, making for a tense and absorbing psychological mystery."—Publishers Weekly


"Infused with page-turning mystery, One Moment is as heartbreakingly real as it is unexpectedly romantic."—Cat Patrick, author of Forgotten and Revived

 

"Beautifully written, achingly romantic, and so much tension the pages seem like they're turning themselves. One of the best books I've read in ages."—Lauren Barnholdt, author of Two-Way Street
