Two years after a deadly plane crash, best friends D and Spider head back to the mountains to uncover the truth. A gripping psychological thriller for fans of The Cheerleaders and Sadie.

D and Spider have always been best friends, and they are further united in their shared grief: they both lost siblings in a horrific plane crash two years earlier. A chance sighting of a beloved cuddly toy in a photograph of the only survivor raises D’s hopes all over again that somehow her sister survived. She and Spider and their friend, Min, set off on a road trip to the mountainside site of that terrible crash.

Ariel has lived on the mountain all her life. She and her extended family are looked down upon by neighboring townsfolk and she has learned to live by her wits, trusting few people outside of her isolated, survivalist community. A terrifying attack sends her down the mountain for help; on her way, she comes upon the three girls—a chance encounter that will have far-reaching consequences for them all.

COMPELLING STORY: Just like she did in Blood Will Out, Jo has created a suspenseful story, which readers won’t be able to put down.

A STRONG FOLLOW-UP TO PREVIOUS NOVEL: With this follow-up to her horror, Blood Will Out, Jo moves a little more firmly into the thriller category.

KICK-ASS FEMALE CHARACTERS: All four girls are strong, in their own unique way, facing difficult situations head-on.

A YA WRITER WITH WIDE APPEAL: Jo’s talent for writing creepy scenes and vivid, strong female characters is perfect for the YA reader, both teen and adult.
