Jaycee's brother Jake was a bit of a dare devil, he always walked on the wild side of life and liked nothing better than to take chances. Except, his last chance ran out and he fell to his death.

Jaycee obviously is devastated and at a loss, she blames her brother, but she also grieves for him.

Dare to drink and create stunts and do them, and you have one lethal concoction.

Why is Jaycee walking around with her brother's clothes on?
Why is she acting the same way her brother did whose last stunt created his death?
Hasn't she learnt from this?

People are afraid of her.

Jaycee is grieving.

If anyone knows about grief, you can act in the most unexpected ways.

Her friends need to take action before its too late.


This was a very moving story. There is therapy, grief, secrets, and coming to an enlightenment of the truth.

Its a well written thought out and thought provoking read.

I thoroughly enjoyed my reading journey with this one.
