Evie’s not sure why she started lying to the girls at school about her friendship with Jonah, her fellow paper route employee. Jonah is older, a college dropout with broad shoulders, a streak of scarlet in his hair, and mystery in his eyes. More than anything, Evie just wants something to happen, so she invents a nonexistent romance out of a crush. But when Jonah discovers a body in the woods—a girl Evie knew when she was little—Evie’s lies grow more complicated. As Evie hunts down the killer, she comes to find that her lies are the only things she can trust. Readers will churn through the pages of Katie Williams’s suspenseful debut novel and feel the chill of goosebumps in its wake.

KATIE WILLIAMS
 
Chapter 
ONE
I’m in Hokepe Woods
this morning, like I am every Sunday, deliver-ing papers and keeping an eye out or Jonah Luks. It’s early when Idrive into the neighborhood, so everyone’s still sleeping. Me, I’m wideawake to see all those Hokepe houses cast in blue like the light in amovie theater ater the credits have gone up and out. The streets arereal quiet, too, not even one lone dog-walker yanking his pup awayrom something it wants to sni. I pull Mom’s car to the curb where Jonah always parks his truck. No truck, though—too early or JonahLuks. When I step out o the car, my breath pus in ront o me likesome strange language I’m speaking. It’s early March and the snow isfnally o the ground, but not the rost yet, and this early, it’s chillyout. I try to sink into it—my couple hours in the cold—and drag mysatchel rom the backseat, liting the strap over my head.The paper route is something I’ve had since I was eleven. Eleven-year-olds aren’t expected to stick with things, but I’ve stuck withthis, and now I’m sixteen and the oldest paper carrier on the list byabout three years. The only girl, too. This doesn’t embarrass me. Ilike the job. Anyway, it’s better than dripping medicine into someneighbor kid’s ear or getting my arms sticky scooping ice cream out
