The Sacrifice of Ava Black
Six months ago Ava Black's entire world came to a crashing halt. Once the most popular cheerleader of her high school, she now watches from the back of the room as her friends move on with their lives. Her health has been taking a steady decline with frequent migraines and episodes of sleep paralysis. The doctors say it's normal and anytime she says anything they only prescribe her more medication.
Ava feels like her world is being swallowed by a black hole and each day she's losing more of who she is, who she was. The pain, the nightmares, and the constant bullying from her former friends are pushing her further into depression.
Then she meets Kira. Kira is everything that Ava used to be: popular, beautiful, and desired. Everyone loves Kira, but the young transfer student could care less. Popularity means little to her. All Kira wants is a friend, a true friend, and that's what she finds in Ava.
The two girls are inseparable, clinging to each other in a way that most can't understand. They are there for each other when no one else will be. Kira is strong and Ava is willful. They are meant to be best friends.
So, why is Gabriel Matthews, the boy that Ava never thought noticed her, suddenly taking an interest in their friendship? Why does he glare at them whenever they pass by? Why is Gabriel following Ava? How does he know what she sees in her nightmares?
