Synopsis: Those are the rules in Rowan’s Glen, a remote farming community in the Missouri Ozarks where Ivy Templeton’s family has lived for centuries. It’s an old-fashioned way of life, full of superstition and traditions passed down from the elders, and sixteen-year-old Ivy loves it. The other kids at school may think the Glen kids are weird, but Ivy doesn’t care; she has her cousin Heather as her best friend. The two girls are closer than sisters, and they share everything with each other—or so Ivy thinks. When Heather goes missing after a May Day celebration, Ivy discovers both her best friend and her beloved hometown are as full of secrets as the woods that surround them.

” Every breath came out shuddered, yet the elation cracked my heart.
I smothered the sobs, covering my grimaced mouth. I had to hide it from him, not because I didn’t like what he did – I did, I wanted it – but rather the void in me ripped open, fresh and endless.”
