That Night. Protagonist Toni Murphy was convicted along with her boyfriend of killing her sister. Stevens provides lengthy exposition through presenting the current time, Toni’s release from prison two decades after the crime, and exposition of what happened in Toni’s life during high school. There’s a recurring theme of bullying in the novel, which Stevens presents with vivid detail. By the time Toni begins her investigation into what really happened on the night her sister was killed, I was interested in all the characters, and couldn’t wait until the mystery was solved. Patient readers will be rewarded by this story, thanks to Stevens’ understanding of the lives she presents and how well that comes across in her writing.
