This is an alternate cover edition for B01LCP4D7M

I kicked out…once…twice…then the parking lot melted away.

Hayden McKaley sneaks out past bedtime, never expecting the worst. She wakes the next morning in a strange house, her ankles and wrists bound.

Her captor—a man wearing a Yoda mask—is mourning his son, a boy so fixated on Hayden he’d created an art journal of his obsession. But this diary holds more than flattering sketches and endearing love poems. It tells of a boy’s bent mind, his appetite for self-injury, and an addiction to playing The Game.

Now his grieving father seeks revenge.

The man’s vengeance is simple—agony and pain. Can Hayden unmask the beast and escape his endless torture? Or will she end up like his son?

Breathe is a young adult suspense that includes two alternate endings.

    Tennessee Williams spent a lifetime re-writing his plays, rarely satisfied with a work even after it had gained acclaim. He took Summer and Smoke and turned it into Eccentricities of a Nightingale, an...

    I was definitely not a fan of this book. It had everything going for it; a good premise that seemed to be quite original, and a blurb that hooked readers in. However, the story just wasn't executed we...
