WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
For good or ill—on the page or in life—few things are more alluring than the siren song of a secret.
At the heart of each story in this genre-crossing collection lies a secret. A boy who is not a boy at all, a neighbor with a mysterious identity, a tortured student with a list that isn’t what it seems, a girl who abandoned the person she used to be at the bottom of a river.
Conflict and possibility are embedded in a secret’s very nature…betrayal and conspiracy are encoded in its DNA. Secrets can transform. They can alienate, anger, or inspire.
One thing is for sure: They make a great story.
