At the beginning of his high school career, Kaiden Philips was one of the greats. He had a natural talent for sports and a personality that made everyone want to be close to him. That was four years ago.
Everything changed the night Jessica died.
He's spent every day since alone, trapped in a shell of guilt and anxiety. To make things worse, he sees Jessica from time to time. She comes to watch him from a distance.
He might have lived like this forever were it not for an accidental run in with a few members of the wrestling team.
Forced out of his comfort zone and into the spotlight, Kaiden begins to wake from his self-imposed prison. Unfortunately, his newfound awareness does not reveal that everyone wants him back.
His rivals can't stand his new confidence, Jessica's best friend still blames him for her death, and the growing body count of female students is beginning to look suspicious.
It forces Kaiden to wonder, does his school suffer from depression and drug abuse, or could there be a serial killer hiding in plain sight?
Suspenseful and compelling, Takedown is one of the few YA books that can compete with the best sellers.
