about

Five voices combine to tell the chilling tale of what happens in a small town when teenage fury is unleashed. Gabriel, Lydia, Alec, and Hollis are four totally different teenagers who were thrown together by accident. Or maybe they were destined to meet, for they all share emotions that unite them and drive them—loneliness, frustration, and anger. Apart they are ordinary enough, unremarkable and not much noticed. Together, in the dark of night, they are drawn to violence like moths to a flame. Gem is a girl who path crosses theirs when she falls in love with Gabriel. Will she offer a way out for Gabriel? Or will the whirlpool of destruction swallow her, too?
