"The footsteps stop but the birds are still singing, singing about a girl who wakes up on a dirt road and doesn't know what happened to her the night before..."
Romy Grey wears her lipstick like armour, ever since the night she was raped by Kellan Turner, the sheriff's son.
Romy refuses to be a victim, but speaking up has cost her everything. No one wants to believe Kellan is not the golden boy they thought he was, and Romy has given up trying to make herself heard.
But when another girl goes missing after a party, Romy must decide whether the cost of her silence might be more than she can bear.
