How far would you go to ensure you never had to go back? When the phone rings in the middle of the night, Hayley knows it not good news, and she's right: her boyfriend, Jesse, is missing, and she might have been the last one to see him alive...
17-year-old Hayley is counting down the days to when she can escape from her parents and the life she feels sure she will inherit from them. She has a plan, though, but when the most popular boy in school suddenly turns his attentions to her, she learns that danger can be found everywhere, not only at home. Just how far will she go to ensure that nobody stands in her way?
Amazon Review: Hayley is the main character in this thought provoking story that reminds us we don't always know what goes on behind closed doors. There are clues throughout the novel that things aren't quite right, but the tension builds nice and slowly, and a few red herrings are tossed out until all the puzzle pieces come together at the end. A quick and enjoyable read for teens - and you can hand it on to your parents when you're finished.

The chance to watch her favorite band at a nearby festival sets off a chain of events involving her bad-tempered best friend, a boy who seems to want to be more than just friends, and her parents, who need to learn to let her go...
