Nell Pestowsky takes risks. Like the night she jumped from a rooftop into a lake at a party—in nothing but her underwear. She wasn’t trying to cause trouble, but that jump set off an unstoppable chain of events, ending with her boyfriend, Toby, crashing his bicycle and fracturing his skull. Everyone is talking about Nell—and not in a good way. But no one knows what happened right after Nell’s infamous jump. It was then that she met the Birdcatcher for the first time. Nell has blocked it from her mind. Now, trying to put it all behind her, Nell is excited to be going camping with her friend Ida. With a backpack full of champagne and Nell’s adorable dog Rocky along for the trip, Nell and Ida are far, far away from everyone they know. They’re free . . . or at least they should be. But Ida has a secret, one that could put the both of them at risk. The Birdcatcher lurks. . . .
