Summary
Now a Netflix Feature Film!

"A heart-pounding page-turner with an outstanding cast of characters, a deliciously creepy setting, and an absolutely merciless body count." -Courtney Summers, New York Times bestselling author of Sadie and The Project

A New York Times bestseller

It's been almost a year since Makani Young came to live with her grandmother and she's still adjusting to her new life in rural Nebraska. Then, one by one, students at her high school begin to die in a series of gruesome murders, each with increasing and grotesque flair.

As the body count rises and the terror grows closer, can Makani survive the killer's twisted plan?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The ever-popular Perkins (Isla and the Happily Ever After, 2014) takes a sharp turn out of YA romance in her latest offering, a clever and, to fans, no doubt surprising foray into the teen slasher genre. When Makani Young moved from her native Hawaii to her grandmother's house in Nebraska, she thought her biggest concerns would be fitting in, putting her troubled past behind her, and navigating her attraction to a mysterious boy. She didn't expect the students at Osborne High to start dying as murder after seemingly unconnected murder shocks the small town. And Makani certainly never expected herself to be targeted by the killer. Perkins deftly builds the suspense like a pro: an uneasy opening leads to some legitimately horrifying murders, and the identity of the killer isn't quite as important as the motivation. Diverse characters, including a transgender boy, are folded into the tale. This is the same reliable formula that spawned the Scream franchise, and Perkins wields it to great effect: readers will be sleeping with one eye open. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: This is a new direction for Perkins, but even fans wary of horror should be sucked in to this addictive read.--Reagan, Maggie Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Raised in Hawaii, Makani Young has moved to small-town Nebraska to live with her grandmother. As her senior year begins, students at her new high school are being murdered by what looks to be a serial killer. After the first death, Perkins (Anna and the French Kiss) spaces out the killings (at first), developing Makani's story and establishing her romance with classmate Ollie, a pink-haired loner who, like Makani, has some secrets. In so doing, Perkins lulls readers into a false sense of security before twisting the knife, figuratively and literally. The murders are both grisly and psychologically unnerving, and the novel's intense realism makes them all the more disturbing; Perkins carefully weaves in everyday details that include the casual racism Makani encounters, a football player's worry about sensing symptoms of degenerative brain disease, and past events in Hawaii that Makani keeps to herself-part of the "wall of unspoken, unspeakable history" between her and Ollie. Even after the killer is identified, the body count keeps rising, leaving readers with questions of motive and where it will all end. Ages 14-up. Agent: Kate Schafer Testerman, KT Literary.
