What if you discovered that Kurt Cobain was not only alive, but might be your real father? Thisnuanced and bittersweet YA debut will keep you guessing until the end. " "Utterly gorgeous. Mesmerizing. Hypnotic. I"love"this book. Jennifer Niven, "New York Times"bestselling author of"All the Bright Places" Nico Cavan has been adrift since her mother vanished when she was four maternal abandonment isn t exactly something you can just get over. Staying invisible at school is how she copes that and listening to alt music and summoning spirits on the Ouija board with her best friend and coconspirator in sarcasm, Obe. But when a chance discovery opens a window onto her mom s wild past, it sparks an idea in her brain that takes hold and won t let go. On a ferry departing Seattle, Nico encounters a slight blond guy with piercing blue eyes wearing a hooded jacket. Something in her heart tells her that this feeling she has might actually be the truth, so she follows him to a remote cabin in the Pacific Northwest. When she is stranded there by a winter storm, fear and darkness collide, and the only one who can save Nico might just be herself."
