Publisher's Summary

For 14-year-old Lucy Martinez, the moment when everything changes comes one night during a long road trip with her older brother, Jamie, and his friend Kit. They’re on their way to Phoenix to visit Lucy’s father for spring break, but never quite make it. While driving across northern New Mexico during a blinding rainstorm, their car hits something - an animal, they think. But after backtracking, they find a girl, dead, on the side of the road.

With amazing insight and compelling prose, Elise Broach charts a suspenseful journey full of danger, loss, and painful self-discovery. What will happen to the lives of three teenagers who can suddenly no longer pretend innocence?
