Description

"Trust no one. A nail-biter littered and lined with twists that will leave you gasping." Teresa Toten, author of Beware That Girl and The Unlikely Hero of Room 13B

Seventeen-year-old Skye Thorn will do anything to get out of her small Michigan town, even if that means pretending to be a psychic for fast cash. When Paige, the local golden girl goes missing, Skye uses her psychic visions to help the police with the case. Her readings have always been faked, but this time Skye has insider knowledge—straight from the kidnappers themselves who promise Skye a portion of the ransom money.

But when their seemingly harmless prank goes terribly wrong, Skye realizes that the group she’s involved with are willing to kill to get what they want. Now, she’ll have to discover their identities before it’s too late.
