Staff Reviews

This is an atmospheric mystery about tragic family pasts and how that trauma affects future generations. One major accident changed lived and forced unbreabale connections that echo through a whole community with the unique backdrop of an Australian boarding school in the outback and teenage territory wars. This novel is heartfelt and intense, but maintains a reality and humor without melodrama. One of my all-time favorites!

— Johanna


In this lyrical, absorbing, award-winning novel, nothing is as it seems, and every clue leads to more questions.

At age eleven, Taylor Markham was abandoned by her mother. At fourteen, she ran away from boarding school, only to be tracked down and brought back by a mysterious stranger. Now seventeen, Taylor's the reluctant leader of her school's underground community, whose annual territory war with the Townies and visiting Cadets has just begun. This year, though, the Cadets are led by Jonah Griggs, and Taylor can't avoid his intense gaze for long. To make matters worse, Hannah, the one adult Taylor trusts, has disappeared. But if Taylor can piece together the clues Hannah left behind, the truth she uncovers might not just settle her past, but also change her future.
