Murder, drugs, poverty, intolerance, and gangs all lin in the small town of Black Creek, North Carolina.  Cat steps out from the dark and opens her eyes to all this when her best friend is almost killed.  She is determined to find his attacker and instead finds secrets that might have been better left alone. A powerful story that dives in to real life issues, Cat’s story will whisper in your mind long after you’ve turned the last page.
