Life is more than just breathing.
Kylee Mansfield knows what it is to be alone. Her dad left when she was seven, and her mother remarried an abusive alcoholic. Kylee finds ways to escape reality, usually by substituting one pain for another.
Things take a deadly turn when a jagged cut shows up on her arm, and she doesn’t know where it came from. She enlists her neighbor, Price Hudson, to help her uncover the truth. But Price shows her much more than just her past—he shows her what it is to be alive.
Caution: This book may not be suitable for all readers. The author describes it as “hard, gritty, and emotional.” There is violence, abuse, and self-cutting. Although it is targeted to teens, parents may want to read it first.
