Fifteen-year-old Devin Rhodes can’t wait to get rid of that baby title freshman. As a svelte sophomore, she thinks she’ll have a boyfriend who’s a man, not a little kid. Her shy best friend, Cass, isn’t so sure. She doesn’t like how Devin winks and shows off her lacy bra, or how she steals shimmering brown lip gloss from the pharmacy just because she can.

She can recall that night vividly - the blind date, the tense conversations, the giant blowup, and the back of Devin's too-white shirt as she runs from the mall parking lot, never to be seen again. Her parents are devastated, the town in a near panic, the killer still on the loose. And it's her fault. Tormented by guilt, Cass struggles to function without her best friend.
