The premise of this novel is that the main character's sister has gotten herself--and her brother--into trouble with the law. To protect his little sister and save himself, Aaron, who is a senior in high school, makes a deal with the police. He agrees to go undercover to help them find the source of drugs being dealt at his school. The story is set in modern Miami, Florida. Going undercover turns out to be harder than he expects and Aaron finds himself making difficult choices when his new friendship with an attractive girl who seems bent on self-destruction leads him and the police deep into the Everglades. Unfortunately, choppy, uneven writing distract from what should have been a suspenseful story. Unexpected twists and turns are seen in the characters' personalities and motivations, rather than the plot, which is predictable at best.
This review refers to an uncorrected advance proof copy of the novel obtained by request from the publisher through netgalley.com.
Expected publication date for this book is August 08, 2012
