Seventeen-year-old Brit Kavanagh is hiding something: Just before her mother disappeared, she gave Brit wings . . . sewn into the skin on her back.
When her father's death forces Brit to leave the only home she's ever known, danger follows her like a shadow. Catastrophe strikes again and again, and at every turn she is confronted by the terrifying apparition of an otherworldly banshee.
Desperate to unravel the mysteries behind her wings and the curse of the banshee, Brit turns to Gentry O'Neill, a handsome lifeguard who knows more than he's telling. With Gentry's help, Brit pieces together her mother's troubled past and discovers the horrifying truth of her own existence: Her mother gave her wings, but she never meant for Brit to fly.
