High school senior Britt Pheiffer plans to spend spring break backpacking in the Grand Tetons before a blizzard strands her, and two strangers take her hostage. Forced to feign wilderness expertise, she promises to guide them to the highway so they'll spare her life. An abrupt and disturbingly graphic opener sets the tone for Fitzpatrick's (the Hush, Hush Series) staccato storytelling and barrage of deadly complications. Britt is smart and resourceful, untangling mixed signals from mysterious captor Mason (who helps her lie to his partner-in-crime, Shaun, to save her friend Korbie), plotting her escape, and navigating the brutal elements blinding snowfalls, frigid temperatures, and grizzly bears. As Britt narrates the tale, she flits between na ve damsel in distress, desperately hoping her outdoorsy ex, Calvin, will come to her rescue and quick-witted young woman who shows resiliency after making the sickening discovery that her captors have killed before. In the vein of Marcus Sedgwick's Revolver, Fitzpatrick's novel is rife with psychological twists exploring themes of revenge, misogyny, and familial duty. Ages 14 up.

love this book so much
ive read it three times and every time it keeps on getting better onley takes a day or two because its too good.
Absolutely mind blowing
This book has taken me for the adventure of a life time. I was no longer Myself I was Britt. I felt as one with Britt as we went through the kidnapping together and fell in love with the mysterious Jude. My heart broke with Britts when she thought the one she had come to love had taken the life of those girls. Then the determination she had to fight to live, even with all of the odds against her. Then my heart shattered along with Britts when he showed up only to say goodbye. And the compete feeling of being in his arms again and feeling the unbreakable connection still even without seeing each other for a year. Thank you so much for taking me out of my world and into your imagination. This is flawless and perfect in every way with its thrills, heartbreak, love, and surprise.
It's so good, it keeps you constantly on your toes, making you want to find out what happens next. I would definitely recommend it 😊
