went looking for more by Amy Kathleen Ryan after reading the final book in her series Glow.

After reading Amy Kathleen Ryan's other book, Vibes, I searched out her other books. This is another well written book but with a much different setting in the Wyoming wilderness.

Breathtaking Wyoming setting, suspenseful action, heartfelt portrayal of sibling love and a certain brand of rivalry.
