The Edgar and Agatha Award-nominated novel from #1 New York Times bestseller Elizabeth George!

On Whidbey Island, nothing is as it seems. Becca's ability to hear "whispers"—the thoughts of others—has put her at risk from her criminal stepfather. So Becca escapes to Whidbey Island, where she hopes to find safety. But when a terrible accident affects everyone on the island, Becca finds herself wrapped up in a complicated situation, and she isn't the only one with a secret.

This compelling coming-of-age story, the first of an ongoing sequence of books set on Whidbey Island, has elements of mystery, the paranormal, and romance.

"Blending mystery, family drama, teen angst and a dose of paranormal, this novel rises above many in the young adult genre." —

"George has hit the nail on the proverbial head with this action-packed, mysterious, and somewhat 'creepy' novel." —Suspense Magazine

This book was really good. I like how she made the girl have a special power, and how she would get her in the middle of situations the girl doesn't want to be in. I've read both books and I can't wait for the third one

Really enjoyed this new genre Elizabeth chose to write. Her storytelling is deep with details, twists and turns in the story plot. Great read and looking forward to the possibility of a second one.
