Is Georgia's mind playing tricks on her, or is the entire town walking into the arms of a killer who has everyone but her fooled?
When seventeen-year-old Georgia's brother drowns while surfing halfway around the world in Australia, she refuses to believe that Lucky's death was just bad luck. Lucky was smart. He wouldn't have surfed in waters more dangerous than he could handle. Then a stranger named Fin arrives in False Bay, claiming to have been Lucky's best friend. Soon Fin is working for Lucky's father, charming Lucky's mother, dating Lucky's girlfriend. Georgia begins to wonder: Did Fin murder her brother in order to take over his whole life?
Determined to clear the fog from her mind in order to uncover the truth about Lucky's death, Georgia secretly stops taking the medication that keeps away the voices in her head. She is certain she's getting closer and closer to the truth about Fin, but as she does, her mental state becomes more and more precarious, and no one seems to trust what she's saying.
As the chilling narrative unfolds, the reader must decide whether Georgia's descent into madness is causing her to see things that don't exist--or to see the deadly truth.
I pushed off the slippery bottom rocks with my sneakers and started swimming. I was screaming Lucky's name and choking and sputtering. My dad started the boat and steered it toward me. I could tell by the look on his face that he didn't see what I saw: Lucky was four feet from my face. He looked exactly like he did in my nightmares.
"A remarkable page-turner . . . Keeps readers wondering, twist by twist, if Georgia's universe will simply burst apart." --Andrew Smith, author of Grasshopper Jungle
