"[A] perfectly orchestrated girl-who-cried-wolf thriller." - The New York Times Book Review

A dark, utterly compulsive novel about what happens when the warped imagination of a teenage girl turns into reality...

When fifteen-year-old Yasmin - obese, obsessive and deemed a freak by her peers - sees a sinister man watching Alice Taylor from the school fence, she becomes convinced he's planning to take her. After all, who wouldn't want the popular and perfect Alice?

Then Yasmin realizes if she can find out who he is before he acts, she'll be the only one who can tell the police, save Alice and become Alice's heroine. But as Yasmin discovers more about this man, her affections begin to shift. Perhaps she was wrong about him. Perhaps she doesn't need Alice after all...

And then Alice vanishes.
