A tox­ic friend­ship takes a dan­ger­ous turn in this riv­et­ing nov­el from the author of Where It Began.

Emma is tired of being good. Always the duti­ful daugh­ter to an over­pro­tec­tive father, she is the antithe­sis of her moth­er — whose name her dad won’t even say out loud. That’s why meet­ing Siob­han is the best thing that ever hap­pened to her…and the most dan­ger­ous. Because Siob­han is fun and allur­ing and expe­ri­enced and lives on the edge. In oth­er words, she’s every­thing Emma isn’t.

And it may be more than Emma can handle.

Because as intox­i­cat­ing as her secret life may be, when Emma begins to make her own deci­sions, Siob­han starts to unrav­el. It’s more than just Dylan, the boy who comes between them. Their high-stakes pacts are spin­ning out of con­trol. Elab­o­rate lies become sec­ond nature. Loy­al­ties and bound­aries are blurred. And it all comes to a head at the infa­mous After­par­ty, a bash where debauch­ery rages and an intense, inescapable con­fronta­tion ends in a plum­met from the rooftop…
