Publisher's Summary

Readers' Favorite International Contest: Silver Medal in Young Adult Thriller.

Hunter needs to remember. Jazz needs to forget. They need each other to heal in this teen thriller of survivor love.

Hunter's past is a mystery to him, erased by a doctor at the direction of his father. But memories of the secret trauma begin to surface when Hunter sees other people's memories - visions invading his mind with stories of abuse, teen self-mutilation, rape, and forbidden sex.

His best friend Jazz has dark and disturbing memories of her own that she hides behind her sass and wit. Hunter discovers he can rescue the victims, even though he risks adding their suffering to his own.

Hunter and Jazz kiss each other's scars and form a bond of empathy no two teens should ever need.

This audiobook contains scenes of sexual abuse, self-mutilation, and suicide. It should not be listened by teens who wish to be shielded from such harsh realities their peers may be enduring alone. Nor by anyone who desires to remain in the dark despite being in a position to shine light. However, those who suffer in private or wish to help those who do - please listen to this story and share its contents.

Many parts of this audiobook are difficult to listen and were very difficult to write. But there is much truth in these sections, some profoundly ugly and some beautiful in its resilience. As one character says, "I have to believe I can still love and be loved. We can't stay broken forever".

And they shouldn't be unknown forever. People need to feel the pain of others.

Brazen telling of teen tragedy

It was hard to get through, even as someone who hasn't experienced abuse. Still I could feel the trauma and really empathize with the narrator. I think this story will resonate most with those who've experienced what the story entails, despite the author's intended audience being those who haven't.
