Ashley Carson was a quiet girl. She didn't have many friends - or any at all, for that matter - and she had an unhealthy obsession with fairy tales. Her only explanation was that the lonely girl with the horrible step-mother always came out on top. So what if for her it was actually her mother? It was still the same concept, she rationalized. She keeps one too many dark secrets - it's only a matter of time before someone finds out. Ryder Halley was nothing but a criminal in the eyes of Wood High School, along with his four brothers and their girlfriends. He didn't quite mind that much, though - he never quite minded anything. It was high school - get in, get out. He had a routine, nothing holding him down. If he got killed, who cares? He wasn't leaving behind a sobbing girlfriend, so it was okay. But then all of that changes because of his fucking older brother.
