Linden Rose lives with a big secret: she’s homeless and secretly living in the halls of her high school. No one can know her secret. If any adults uncovered the truth, they’d get the authorities involved and derail everything she’s worked for. All she wants is to make it through high school and get into college to fulfill her dreams of becoming a journalist.

Her position as editor of the school’s blog, her best friends Ham and Seung, and the promise of a future far away are what keeps Linden under the radar and moving forward. The three outsiders have created a makeshift family and their jokes and solidarity have become home for Linden. And she’s beginning to hope that with Seung there might be something more than friendship on the horizon. But when cool-girl Bea comes to school with a bloody lip, it hits closer to home than Linden would like to admit. Linden starts looking more closely at Bea’s relationship with her boyfriend, and soon her investigation causes people to pay more attention to Linden’s own dark history. And attention is the last thing she needs.

Linden knows the only way to put a stop to the violence is to tell the story. Even if that means breaking her rules and jeopardizing the secrets she’s worked so hard to keep.
