“Roanoke girls never last long around here. In the end, we either run or we die.” ~Amy Engel
Thus begins a journey of one Roanoke girl, Lane, returning to a place she swore she would never return to; in search of another Roanoke girl, Allegra. Along the way Lane will discover secrets that will shock her very existence to the core. A gripping read had me on the edge of my seat until the end.

Vital and eye-opening reading for engaged citizens of the world.
