Me: Re- I'm really sorry that I've been distant. I know that I've been harsh.
Me: You haven't done anything...
Me: I guess I just don't know how to handle these sorts of things either.
Me: We aren't supposed to be touched by tragedy. It messes with us in all the wrong ways.
Me: Forgive me?

Reid: Always...
Reid: Love you, girl. We'll get through this.

For the first time in a while, a genuine smile crossed my lips. No matter what, we were sisters.

Harper Mae Cromwell is your typical teenager, with hair as red as fire.
There's just one small problem...
She's a girl with a secret. 

Struggling to make it through the remainder of the year, Harper forces herself to concentrate on finishing high school. She's looking forward to her future so that she can put her secret behind her but if something seems too good to be true, it usually is. 

When Hubert High is hit with tragedy, Harper notices that someone is following her. Though her family suggests a meeting with the family therapist, Harper refuses to cooperate and decides that she can handle her situation. 

When events escalate, she must decide what's more important: trust a stranger that she hardly knows with her deepest secret or fight everything alone. 

One choice will give her freedom, the other may cost her life...
