"Life will sooner or later show its claws." --Anton Chekov

For sixteen -year-old Jed Berg, life couldn't be sweeter. He's gotten his driver's license, landed a major girlfriend, and made number one singles in varsity tennis. His dad has even begun to let him drive his 1969 Chevy Camaro -- he's the envy of every guy at school. Then Jed meets his nemesis, a strange punk chick who seems to know everything about Jed -- and about his family. She has a secret to share, a secret so unsettling it triggers a chain of dreadful events.

From the streets of Duluth to the treacherous wilderness of northern Minnesota, acclaimed author Will Weaver spins a mesmerizing story of two unforgettable teenagers caught in a web of love, betrayal, and survival.
