Fight or Flight.
All Kayla Asher wants to do is run. Run from the government housing complex she calls home. Run from her unstable mother. Run from a desperate job at No Limit Foods. Run to a better, cleaner, safer life. Every day is one day closer to leaving.
All Betsy Hopewell wants to do is survive. Survive the burner phone hidden under her bed. Survive her new rules. Survive a new school with new classmates. Survive being watched. Every minute grants her another moment of life.
But when fate brings Kayla and Betsy together, only one girl will live.
What really hooked me with this synopsis was that it talks about 2 girls and the very last line says that only one will live. I love that YA is starting to get a bunch of mysteries/horrors/thrillers because they are super exciting and I am loving it!!!! 😀
