Description

Sequel to the Edgar-nominated The Edge of Nowhere, from #1 New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth George

A mysterious girl who won’t speak; a coal black seal named Nera that returns to the same place every year; a bitter feud of unknown origin—strange things are happening on Whidbey Island, and Becca King, is drawn into the maelstrom of events. But Becca has her own secrets to hide. Still on the run from her criminal stepfather,  Becca is living in a secret location. Even Derric, the Ugandan orphan with whom Becca shares a close, romantic relationship, can’t be allowed to know her whereabouts. As secrets of past and present are revealed, Becca becomes aware of her growing paranormal powers,  and events build to a shocking climax anticipated by no one.

Acclaimed author Elizabeth George brings her extraordinary talents to this intriguing story that blends mystery and myth.

"A ripping good thriller." —School Library Journal

  • Really disappointing!

    It's hard to imagine have such an accomplished author could have written such a lame book. The plot is absurd and the story is laden with clichéd teenage angst. The whole bit about Becca living in a tree house makes no sense. The development of the relationships between the characters is completely predictable. The ending is beyond ridiculous. I don't think Elizabeth George is giving young adults much credit for being intelligent readers with this book.
