Would you risk your life to save your best friend?
Julia did. When a paroled predator attacked Liv in the woods, Julia fought back and got caught. Liv ran, leaving Julia in the woods for a terrifying 48 hours that she remembers only in flashbacks. One year later, Liv seems bent on self-destruction, starving herself, doing drugs, and hooking up with a violent new boyfriend. A dead girl turns up in those same woods, and Julia’s memories resurface alongside clues unearthed by an ambitious reporter that link the girl to Julia’s abductor. As the devastating truth becomes clear, Julia realizes that after the woods was just the beginning.

I step closer. A light flickers in his eyes. Greedy. He wants us both, but he can’t hold us both. He imagines we’ll fight.
Liv’s eyes flit over my face. Pleading.
I rush him.
My fingertips graze his jacket as a glove clamps down on my ankle. I fall. My ankle snaps. The pain fills every space in my body. I hear someone howling. Me.
I turn my head. The view is different from the forest floor.
Liv rolls and scrambles to her feet. Liv is a powder blue smudge, running and falling and running, until the crashing fades.
The man stands over me, smiling. He has small teeth like a child.
