Emily’s dad is accused of murdering a teenage girl. Emily is sure he is innocent, but what happened that night in the woods behind their house where she used to play as a child? Determined to find out, she seeks out Damon Hillary, the enigmatic boyfriend of the murdered girl. He also knows these woods. Maybe they could help each other. But he’s got secrets of his own about games that are played in the dark.
In essence, the catalyst for this book is the death of a teenage girl, who is found in the woods one hot summer night. The novel is told from two perspectives. A girl and a boy, Emily and Damon – both of who knew the dead girl, Ashlee, in different ways. As they explore the woods and try to discover the clues of what actually happened that night, they discover a whole lot more about the darkness that may exist within them also. Their exploration of the woods becomes an exploration of themselves and each other.
