From the Publisher
The first young adult book by a #1 New York Times
Whidbey Island may be only a ferry ride from Seattle, but it''s a
world apart. When Becca King arrives there, she doesn''t suspect
the island will become her home for the next four years. Put at
risk by her ability to hear "whispers"--the thoughts of
others--Becca is on the run from her stepfather, whose criminal
activities she has discovered. Stranded and alone, Becca is soon
befriended by Derric, a Ugandon orphan adopted by a local family;
Seth, a kindhearted musician and high school dropout; Debbie, a
recovering alcoholic who takes her in; and Diana, with whom Becca
shares a mysterious psychic connection.
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. Elizabeth George, bestselling author
of the Inspector Lynley crime novels, brings her elegant style,
intricate plotting, incisive characterization, and top-notch
storytelling to her first book for teens.
