“Jenna Cooper is a high school girl who sets out to unravel the dark secrets in her family's past… Readers will enjoy following Jenna's journey as she discovers the opportunities for starting over that can only come from an encounter with the cold, hard truth… The characters are edgy, the dialogue rings true, the prose flows smoothly and the tension is tight in Elizabeth Wennick’s strong addition to the mystery genre.”
