She wakes up on the floor of a remote, ransacked cabin battered and bruised, and worst of all, with no memory of who she is or how she got there. She has no idea why someone is trying to kill her but soon finds herself on the run, with no memory, and no idea who she can trust. Her first attempts to seek help only result in the realization that someone is trying to frame her - and even the authorities will not believe what has happened.
Desperate and on the run, Kady meets Ty, a kind and helpful boy about her own age. Together they try to piece back together the missing parts of her memory and solve the mystery of what has happened to Kady and the family she cannot remember. Little do they know how dangerous the journey is about to become, but they soon realize that the clock has started ticking and they are running out of time. This is an incredibly suspenseful read with enough twists and turns to make you keep turning the pages. In true April Henry style, this story grabs you from first page and makes you want to finish the entire book in one sitting. The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die has been nominated for the 2015-2016 young adult Golden Sower Award.
