Everyone says that Caro is bad-but Jamie can't help himself. Gorgeous, impulsive, and unconventional, Caro is totally different from all the other girls and Jamie can't believe that she wants to be his girlfriend. But Jamie soon realizes there is more to Caro-much more. Consider: How she often disappears for days at a time, or the small scars on her wrists, or her talk about revolution and taking action, not to mention the rumors about the other guys....

Jamie's also worried about Rob, his older brother. Back from Afghanistan and traumatized from an injury there, Rob seems to be living in a world of his own and is increasingly difficult to reach.

Which is why it's so strange that Rob and Caro seem to know one another. And why it feels so dangerous that they're being awfully secretive.
