Publisher's Summary

High-school junior Jordan MacKenzie’s life was pretty typical: fractured family, new boyfriends, dead-end job. She’d been living with her father (the predictable optometrist) since her mother (the hippie holdover) had become too embarrassing to be around. Jordan felt that she finally had as normal a life as she could. Then came Gayle D’Angelo.
Jordan knew her father was dating Gayle and that Gayle was married. Jordan knew it was wrong and that her father was becoming someone she didn’t recognize anymore, but what could she do about it? And how could she – how could anyone – have possibly guessed that this illicit love affair would implode in such a violent and disturbing way?


What the Critics Say

"[C]aptivating details make this scandalous story seem all too real, and Jordan's magnetic voice marks Caletti as a writer to watch." (Publishers Weekly)

Couldn't stop listening!!

Deb Caletti once again shows how amazing her storytelling skills are. This book fills you with a sense of foreboding from the start. The narrator says right off that a catastrophe has happened but she reveals just enough to keep you hanging on...not unlike an addict getting just enough to keep them going always looking for the next "fix" (the next clue of what is happening...the next level of getting into the characters). This book is riveting. Ms Rudd does a spectacular job reading this tale. Ms Caletti strikes again with another spellbinding, outstanding narrative!
