A gorgeous novel! Braffet's characters are stunning & heartbreaking.
There is real talent here, and I can't wait to read everything else she
has written.

— Suzanna


A gripping novel full of suspense and pathos that Dennis Lehane calls an "electrifying, tomahawk missile of a thriller."

Patrick Cusimano's father killed a boy while driving drunk. Now Patrick is working at a grubby convenience store, and he and his brother, Mike, are the town pariahs. Caro, Mike's girlfriend, is running from her own painful past, with no idea what she's running toward. Layla Elshere is a goth teenager who befriends Patrick for reasons he doesn't understand and doesn't trust. And Layla's little sister, Verna, tortured by her classmates, finds unlikely solace with Layla's dark tribe of outcasts.

As their fates become entwined, everyone is set down a terrifying and twisted path--leading them all toward a collision where loyalties will be betrayed, fears exposed, and lives shattered.

Now with Extra Libris material, including recommended reading and bonus content.
