teenager number seven. With the rash of suicides at my school, I've been
shipped off to my dad's Wyoming ranch for “my own safety.” My mom worries I'll

has changed at the ranch since I was there last. The staff is gone, and there
aren’t any visitors. The place is struggling, and ALS is destroying my dad. The
one bright spot in this mess is his new—and only—ranch hand, Jake. He’s
gorgeous, cheerful, healthy and sane. Shadows don't haunt his eyes and eat away
at him in the night.

the ranch and Jake can't save me from the darkness inside, or the knowledge of
what I've done. This time, it's up to me to save myself...
