Jessica Gillesmen is trying to live a normal teenage life, but ever since her mom died. Normal is not exactly in her vocabulary. Trying to maintain her sanity and catch the eye of her crush, Jess has the help of her supporting father and two best friend, Amy and Sarah. But everything takes a sudden turn when a new family from Russia moves into the small town, and the principal gives Jess the pleasure of showing Pietr around. Jess doesn't understand this boy. So devastatingly handsome and strange, Jess can't help but wonder if he's hiding something. What she doesn't know about Pietr is that he has a very dark and dangerous secret. Her world comes crumbling down and now everything is not what it seems anymore. In my opinion, this book was just W-O-W. I loved it so much! I couldn't put it down and I finished it in the same day! I recommend reading it, and trust me you'll be wanting to read the second one Secrets and Shadows.
