Aubrey spent her whole life suffering in the role of the ‘perfect’ daughter…until one night changed everything.
In an instant, the boy she thought she loved betrays her. Then she’s sent off halfway across the country to live with her brother who allows her more freedom than she knows how to handle.

Determined not to let the past control her future, she learns to let go and live life according to her rules. But can she embrace her future while still haunted by her past?
Aubrey thought she left her haunted past behind her when she moved to sunny Southern California, but the stalker she thought was locked up found her.
This time, she’s not alone. As her brother and friend rally to make her feel safe she can’t help but feel suffocated. She refuses to shut down and let some creep ruin her newly built life.
Until one by one, she watches her friends slip away.
