“You tell and next time you won’t even be able to crawl away.”
Neal Marchal lived with this threat for the next eight years. When she finds her neighbor murdered, she knows who did it. The why is the secret the family has been keeping forever. Her limp is the reminder to never reveal the secret.
She rebuilt her life and now Neal has everything to live for—music, performing and a growing affection for the young man who pulled her to safety.
Then her stepbrother comes home. Neal knows Joe’s going to finish what he started 8 years ago because she told. But this time Neal vows the outcome will be different.

"Haunting story, it had a poetic feel to it. Neal and Truly are opposites in every way, but Truly sees something behind the surface in Neal and he wants to let her see it to. Intense plot line, an excellent read."--Musings From an Addicted Reader 1/14/13

"This is a very realistic story, which in some ways will break your heart. In others, you'll love it."-- Rebecca Mackinnon, tHe crooKed WorD 10/24/12

"Barbara Morgenroth skillfully weaves a story where all these people have a place and purpose. Bad Apple also has a bit of mystery. You never really know all the answers, even when you've read the final page. Good thing that it's a series!"--YA Book Crazy 01/03/13
