Living most of her life in Skillute, Washington, fourteen year old Tasha Davis needs a best friend. At Clark Middle School, she gains a new classmate with Briar Kenny. Rebellious and stylish, Briar is everything Tasha wants to be, while Tasha’s family life is what Briar wishes for.
When some unexpected violence leads to a secret between Tasha and Briar, a mystery is awakened. There, in a forgotten corner of Skillute, is something monstrous.
