When Skylar Rousseau falls from Blackfin Pier and drowns on her sixteenth birthday, the whole town goes into mourning - until she shows up three months later like nothing happened. Unravelling the mystery of those missing months takes Sky to the burned-out circus in the woods, where whispers of murder and kidnapping begin to reveal the town's secrets. But Sky's not the only one digging up the past - the old mime from the circus knows what happened to her, and he has more than one reason for keeping quiet. Weird things happen in this town, they always have, from the Blood House to the haunted weathervane. But not this weird. Nothing stays buried in Blackfin...
