Five years after being kidnapped, Elian's captor sends him into the mall--with a bomb strapped to his chest.
Across the mall is Maya, a girl whose crippling anxiety holds her prisoner in its own way.
Whether it's chance or fate, Maya keeps Eli from ending them all. And now nothing is the same. Drawn together by their dark pasts, Maya and Eli know it takes only seconds for their entire worlds to change. But time will tell if meeting each other will change them for better or worse.
"A riveting novel about the capacity for hope in the midst of evil." - Sara Zarr, National Book Award finalist
