This book will keep the reader on the edge of his or her seat! It's another psychological thriller by Gail Giles with an ending that will leave you breathless. There is mature content and language throughout the story so it's not appropriate for younger adolescents.

Matt is just an ordinary guy until he meets Skye, the goth girl everyone ignores and makes fun of. He knows she is not really his type, but he's heard she might be "easy," so he ignores the fact that he doesn't even really like her and lets her in. Skye tells Matt horrific stories about his past and those stories really affect him. He starts to feel like she really needs him. Even so, both of them are determined, for different reasons, to keep their relationship a secret. As Skye reels Matt in, a friend with a back story involving Skye, tries to warn him. And though he sees that she is right, he just can't stay away from her. Skye tells Matt that she's picked him - that he's the one. He thinks this means she loves him, but really it means she intends to use him and when she asks him to do the unthinkable, Matt must really come to terms with what he wants from life and where Skye is trying to take him.
