Fifteen-year-old Lynn Marie Sugrue is doing her best to make it through a difficult summer. Her mother works long hours as a nurse, and Lynn suspects that her mother’s pill-popping boyfriend has enlisted her in his petty criminal enterprises. Lynn finds refuge in online flirtations, eventually meeting up with a troubled young soldier, Logan Loy, and inviting him home. When he’s forced to stay over in a storage space accessible through her closet, and the Army subsequently lists him as AWOL, she realizes that he’s the one thing in her life that she can control. Meanwhile, her mother’s boyfriend is on the receiving end of a series of increasingly violent threats, which places Lynn squarely in the crosshairs.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Zimmerman presents an engrossing and unforgettable tale based on actual events…Those who can empathize with flawed characters in dire situations will not be able to put this book down.” Library Journal
“Compelling stuff from a writer who can handle difficult, sometimes grisly material extremely well.” Kirkus Reviews
“Zimmerman executes a neat trick here: having a character do something both unthinkable and kind of ridiculous and still be sympathetic…The clean, sharp prose and steadily building tension will keep readers up long into the night.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars)
