In the small town where she lives, Jess has always been considered a bit of a freak. The outsider with the strange hair. The psycho who beat up the biggest boy in school. The sad weirdo who can’t get over her mother’s death.
Over the years she’s worked hard to fit in, to make some friends and to control her grief and her rage. To be just another ordinary girl. But at the start of her senior year, things begin to unravel.
Deep inside her, something is stirring – something older than her, and colder, and unmoved by human feeling.
When she learns that she’s the last descendant of an ancient bloodline controlled by an ominous secret Order, Jess doesn’t know who to trust. At school, a group of boys is planning to humiliate her. At home, nobody is quite what they seem.
Least of all herself.
