For his sixteenth birthday, Asher Price gets a date and a death threat. No one believes he's in danger, but when Asher's relationship with Garrett is revealed in his small Florida town, he's certain he will be destroyed. Still haunted by guilt over his brother's death and his mom's breakdown, Asher can't tell the truth. Instead, his best friend's practical advice to deny everything wins out.
When Asher's mom announces they're moving to Chicago, it seems like the perfect out, but how can he leave the only place that holds memories of his dead brother? Asher must choose between staying in a town where people know too much or escaping to a city where no one knows or cares, but either way, he can't hide from himself.
In the final book of this award-winning series, Asher exposes his greatest fears and finally develops a clear picture of his true self.
Third Book in the Asher Trilogy
One dark summer night, Beth and Jackie go out to the canoe dock.
Two years later, Beth is still carrying the weight of the secrets they shared, and the truth about what happened to Jackie.
At seventeen, she’s living alone in her father’s apartment, popping sedatives to squash the nightmares, and trudging to therapy with the indomitable Dr. Sullivan so that she can get into the bridge program that will let her start her life over. But the harder Beth tries to outrun her past—including her fraught family relationships—the more entrenched in memories she becomes.
As her life starts to spin out of control and Dr. Sullivan begins to succumb to her own demons, Beth is in danger of losing herself in the black waters of her own mind.
