Patrick Cusimano’s life can’t get much worse. His father is in jail, he works the midnight shift at a grubby convenience store, and his brother’s girlfriend, Caro, has pushed their friendship to an uncomfortable new level. On top of all that, he can’t shake the attentions of Layla Elshere, a goth teenager who befriends Patrick for reasons he doesn’t understand, and doesn’t fully trust. The temptations these two women offer are pushing Patrick to his breaking point.

Meanwhile, Layla’s little sister, Verna, is suffering through her first year of high school. She’s become a prime target for her cruel classmates, and not just because of her strange name and her fundamentalist parents. Layla’s bad-girl rep casts a shadow too heavy for Verna to bear alone, so she falls in with her sister’s tribe of outcasts. But their world is far darker than she ever imagined.

Unless Patrick, Layla, Caro, and Verna can forge their own twisted paths to peace, with themselves and each other, then they’re stuck on a dangerous collision course where the stakes couldn’t be higher.

Quotes & Awards

  • “An electrifying, tomahawk missile of a thriller with honest-to-God people at its core. It rocks the house.”

    Dennis Lehane, New York Times bestselling author of Shutter Island

  • “Braffet expertly captures the suffocating confines of small-town life and the desperation of its outliers, with prose that simmers and thrums.”

    Salon

  • “Captivating, realistically creepy…Braffet uses graceful prose, astute dialogue, and vivid characters to carry the plot to an unexpected and believable finale.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Excruciatingly rendered characters and locomotive plotting…The plot is on a collision course that is going to end ugly—but also, in Braffet’s hands, beautifully…Perceptive, nervy, and with broad cross-genre appeal.”
