Wren Thorpe is smitten by Leah Glover, the beautiful and mysterious new transfer student to his high school. When she reluctantly tells him that she is being abused, his hero complex kicks in. The fact that Wren is practically raising himself--his father is a drunkard and his mother, desperate to recapture her stolen youth, goes on a dating spree--makes him even more eager to rescue the troubled young girl.
Unfortunately, Leah has a reputation for telling outlandish stories and outright lies. When she informs him that her abuser is her stepfather--a decorated police officer with near-saint status in the community--Wren is faced with a gut-wrenching dilemma. Does he believe the girl he has fallen in love with or the man who has become more of a father to him than his real father ever was? Figuring out the truth will bring deadly consequences.
This young adult novel combines romance, suspense, danger and heroism in a way that will appeal to both males and females.
