The new guy at Tracy's school is handsome, intense, and desperately needs her help--but there's something about him that isn't quite right

High school junior Tracy Lloyd is unsure about the new guy in school. Brad Johnson is attractive, smart, and polite, but Tracy can't help but feel he watches her too closely. Then one day Brad confides in Tracy a horrible secret: His little sister Mindy has been kidnapped by his stepfather, and he needs Tracy's help to get her back. But even as Tracy commits to a plan to help her vulnerable new friend, details emerge that suggest nothing is what it seems.





Last summer Tracy Lloyd’s mother died which forced her to move to Winfield to live with her aunt and uncle. Tracy’s distant, she doesn’t get attached, and she’s blasé to guys who might approach her. She has no interests in having friends either, except for the usual hot-blonde-long-legged best friend, Gina who she keeps at arm’s length but shares a locker with. Instantly were introduced to New Blood, Brad Johnson, who Gina pegs as “Mr. Gorgeous” with his curly hair and a “face that launched a thousand ships.”
