Five voices combine to tell the chilling tale of what happens in a small town when teenage fury is unleashed. Gabriel, Lydia, Alec, and Hollis--four totally different teenagers who are ordinary enough, unremarkable and not much noticed. Together, in the dark of night, they are drawn to violence like moths to a flame. Only Gem stands apart. Will the whirlpool of destruction swallow her too?
