Becca King and her mother are on the run from her stepfather who has used Becca's talent for hearing 'whispers' to make a large and illegal sum of money. Now their options for safety are running out.
In the town of Langley on Whidbey Island, Becca finds refuge in the home of her mother's childhood friend while her mother continues on to Canada in search of safety. But on her first day in town Becca meets 16-year-old Derric Mathieson, a Ugandan orphan who was adopted as a 10-year-old by the town's Deputy Sheriff. Derric has a secret that no one on Whidbey Island knows.
Derric and Becca form an unseverable bond. Becca is convinced that she's the only person who can truly help him, and just maybe Derric can convince Becca that life is too short to live on the run.
"Action-packed, mysterious, and somewhat creepy... A combination of great characters and relationships have this novel raising the bar when it comes to today's YA fiction" (Suspense Magazine)

Surely not the writer of the Lynley stories
14 year old girls.
The story wasn't that bad although the author could have made more of the whispers.
The voices were truly awful. Is this how young people in America talk?
I would just change the narration.
I'm 42 years too old for this story.
Great young teens book
Young, insightful, sequeal required!
Whispers tell more than behaviours
Even though I think this book was written for a youth market, I really enjoyed listening to it. I hope it developes into a series and we can see how the characters develope.
