After surviving kidnapping and injuries in the Manitoba wild, seventeen-year-old Jake and fifteen-year-old Izzy finally return home to the town of Thompson. They're greeted as heroes by their friends and loved ones, but Jake and Izzy's hometown has changed and is now deeply divided. Mistrust is everywhere, and a group from one side of Thompson-including Parnell, the de facto leader, and Boyd, an angry teen-grow increasingly hostile to their neighbors.
Despite Thompson's strife, Jake is on a mission to find his missing father. But in a world growing more dangerous, a native like Jake must search carefully to avoid being caught up in the tensions swirling around town. Meanwhile, Izzy uncovers a terrifying plot and must warn Jake before it's too late.
Filled with gripping action, Joe Beernink's sequel to Nowhere Wild leads to a dramatic confrontation between two groups brutally divided by hatred and fear. In the end, only Izzy can keep Thompson from destroying itself altogether.
