In most small towns, the new kid is big news. In Harrisburg, Washington, there's something going on that's even bigger.
Will Hunter is used to being the New Kid; Harrisburg High School is his fifth new school in less than three years. By now, he knows not to be fooled by the bright pep rallies, the wholesome jocks, the innocent cheerleaders. He knows the evil lurking underneath. It's the same evil that took his dad eight years ago; the same evil he battles every day.
Natalie Holands's life fell apart the night her sister Emily dissappeared. No one believes her when she tells them what she saw: yellow eyes glowing beneath the surface of the water in which Emily supposedly drowned and Emily isn't the only person to go missing in Harrisburg lately. The town is changing, not for the better, and Natalie doesn't know why. What she does know is that, whatever's happening, it's bad, and the New Kid is right in the middle of it.
Because Will's got a secret ever bigger than Harrisburg's... and theres more to it than he knows.
