"A clever page-turner that I couldn't put down."
Natasha Preston, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author?
In one week, Maude will be dead. At least, that's what she wants everyone to think. After years of research, Maude has decided to fake her own death. She's figured out the how, the when, the where, and who will help her unsuspectingly. The why is complex: revenge, partly. Her terrible parents deserve this. But there's also 'l'appel du vide,' the call of the void, that beckons her toward a new life where she will be tied to no one, free and adrift. Then Frankie, a step-cousin she barely knows, figures out what she's plotting, and the plan seems like it's ruined. Except Frankie doesn't want to rat her out. Frankie wants in.
The girls vault into the unknown, risking everything for a new and limitless life. But there are some things you can never run away from. What if the poison is not in the soil, but in the roots? This pulse-pounding thriller offers a nuanced exploration of identity, freedom, and falling in love while your world falls apart.
"An action-packed LGBTQIAIA+ thriller. Compulsively readable."
School Library Journal
"Both Maude and Frankie are quick-witted heroines whose respective quests for autonomy and internal struggles regarding sexuality and gender identity provide depth. Culminating in a suspenseful ending, Heard's alluring novel is an invigorating ride."
"An atmospheric, heart-jolting thriller. The book alternates between Maude's and Frankie's perspective as they explore their relationship, identities, and what it means to be truly free from people who don't want you to be yourself or pursue happiness."
"There is no shortage of drama but the characters' complexities build given time. Readers will need to block out the whole day for this one because they won't put it down until it's done."
