Mean girls: "You're a Nobody." Her mom's in a mental hospital; her meals are dredged out of dumpsters, and 16-year-old Rowan Mahoney is shoplifting to stay alive. Shipped off to a juvie jail, she sneaks off grounds and meets a boy named Theo Corbin. He's gorgeous, funny, and sexy; Rowan falls hard for him. But if she's learned one thing on the street it's this: Something too good to be true probably isn't. Theo poses too many unanswered questions: What are those weird bumps on his head? Why do his cuts heal instantly? Time for some hardcore googling--which spits out a stunning answer: Theo is a satyr. Not the wine-guzzling, girl-chasing creature of ancient myths, but a modern day descendent who possesses a blood type so valuable it's worth killing for. When Theo's folks are murdered and he's kidnapped, Rowan sets out to find him. Following a twisting cross-country trail, evading police as well as a vicious biker gang, Rowan begins to doubt herself. She's always been told she's not bright enough, not athletic enough--not anything enough to succeed. But stubborn.Yeah, Rowan's got that; she's kind of a human bulldog. Sheer tenacity keeps her fighting through obstacles until she at last stumbles across Theo's location. He's imprisoned with a group of other young satyrs in a vast underground cavern in the desert--escape-proof, monitored by brutal guards and 24-7 surveillance. Every couple of weeks, one of the boys is removed, never seen again. Rumor has it that their blood is used to keep wealthy old men alive. Theo is next up on the "Removal" list, but he has no intention of sticking around. All his escape attempts fail, however--until the girl from his past shows up. Together, he and Rowan devise a plan that will free all the prisoners. Every plan has a flaw, though--and in this case, the weak link is Rowan herself. She's never been brave or strong. How is she supposed to find the courage to risk her life for the boy she loves? "A thrilling dystopian adventure with everything: mythical creatures, stellar mazes, a trip to the Emerald City, and plenty of action keeping the reader riveted."--Sally Cisna, author of Fishing for Happiness "I found myself asking what next, fighting the urge to skip ahead." -Dan Anderson, author of Drunk in the Warm Glow "Luz and Rowan are the Lucy and Ethel of the TIKTOK age." -ARC reviewer "[Juliet Rosetti is] a great story teller; I will read everything she writes."--Book-Loving "What Twilight did for vampires, this story does for satyrs: -ARC reviewer
