An action-packed, edge-of-your-seat novel about a teen who, when backed into a corner, fights back, from the author of What Waits in the Woods
Kaia has been on the run her whole life. The daughter of professional assassins, she knows danger-and she'll do anything to survive. After her parents vanished during a job gone bad, Kaia's spent the last year in hiding, trying to blend in as an ordinary teenager, and there's no one who makes her feel more normal, more special, than her boyfriend, Oliver.
But when she's jumped by a hit man and Oliver catches her fighting back, Kaia's secret is exposed. In a split-second decision, she flees her small town, taking Oliver with her. With hit men stalking their every move, can Kaia and Oliver protect each other long enough to uncover the mysteries of her past?

About the Author
"Scott delivers a zippy narrative that downplays romance. The result is a story with all the driving suspense of a spy thriller. She divides the narrative between Kaia and Oliver in alternating first-person chapters, creating interesting, well-rounded characters." - Kirkus
"a pulse-pounding climax" - The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"fast-paced, Jason Bourne-esque story" - Booklist
"The story [is] engrossing and difficult to set down. Also notable is the equality of the sexes, in terms of risks taken and grit required, a valuable lesson for all readers to consider."" - School Library Connection
"A fun, fast read." - Manhattan Book Review
