How do you
live your life if your past is based on a lie? A new novel in both verse
and prose from #1 New York Times bestselling author, Ellen Hopkins.
For as long as she can remember, it’s been just Ariel and Dad. Ariel’s
mom disappeared when she was a baby. Dad says home is wherever the two of
them are, but Ariel is now seventeen and after years of new apartments,
new schools, and new faces, all she wants is to put down some roots.
Complicating things are Monica and Gabe, both of whom have stirred a
different kind of desire.
Maya’s a teenager who’s run from an abusive mother right into the arms
of an older man she thinks she can trust. But now she’s isolated with a
baby on the way, and life’s getting more complicated than Maya ever
could have imagined.
Ariel and Maya’s lives collide unexpectedly when Ariel’s mother shows
up out of the blue with wild accusations: Ariel wasn’t abandoned. Her
father kidnapped her fourteen years ago.
What is Ariel supposed to believe? Is it possible Dad’s woven her entire

she’s been taught to mistrust and the father who has taken care of her
all these years?
In bestselling author Ellen Hopkins’s deft hands, Ariel’s emotionally

beautifully with Maya’s story of loss and redemption. This is a
memorable portrait of two young women trying to make sense of their lives
and coming face to face with themselves—for both the last and the very
