When Hugh wakes up in a smoldering
crater—no memory, no clothes—a single thought echoes in his head…trust no one.
Frightened and alone, with no memory of who he is, he stumbles upon a grisly
murder scene and is fatally shot. He wakes, only to find he can heal himself.
He has superpowers, and he’s going to need them.
Desperate and bleeding, Hugh stumbles upon
fifteen-year-old Cece, who’s got enough troubles of her own. Between caring for
her bipolar mother and trying not to get evicted from her run-down trailer,
Cece may be the only person struggling as much as Hugh. Drawn to Hugh, Cece
finds a love she’s never known. But when the real killer—a man-hunting
beast—chooses another victim, Hugh and Cece realize they must unlock the clues
to their past if they have any chance at a future.
About the Author
French imagined herself an author when her poem caught the eye of her second
grade teacher. In middle school she spent her free time locked in her room,
writing her first young adult novel. Though her social life suffered, her love
for literature thrived. She studied English at Eastern Michigan
University, where she
veered from writing and earned an education degree. She spent nine years
teaching high school English. Currently she is a school counselor, doing a job
that is both one of the hardest things she's ever done and the most rewarding.
In her free time she writes, reads great books and takes care of her two
beautiful and crazy children. She is a contributor and co-creator of
Underground Book Reviews, a website dedicated to erasing the boundaries between
traditional and non-traditional publishing. She lives in Michigan with her husband and two children.
