Thank you to Virginia Duncan, my editor at Greenwillow, who helped make this book's INSIDES as gorgeous as the outside. She's a genius with words.

Thanks to Martha Mihalick, for coming up with the wickedly awesome tagline for the cover! It blows my mind! Thanks to the art director at Greenwillow, Paul Zakris, for helping make this cover shine!

Thanks to the cover designer, Matt Roeser, who put a face to Meadow and Zephyr's story, and made it CREEPY and CHILLING and blood-red and....I love it. Thank you.

Thank you to Epic Reads, for being marketishly awesome.

Thanks to my agent, Louise Fury, for making this all happen.

I love you all. You are rocking my world.

What are you waiting for?!

An action-packed, blood-soaked, futuristic debut thriller set in a world where the murder rate is higher than the birthrate. For fans of Moira Young's Dust Lands series, La Femme Nikita, and the movie Hanna.

Meadow Woodson, a fifteen-year-old girl who has been trained by her father to fight, to kill, and to survive in any situation, lives with her family on a houseboat in Florida. The state is controlled by The Murder Complex, an organization that tracks the population with precision. The plot starts to thicken when Meadow meets Zephyr James, who is-although he doesn't know it-one of the MC's programmed assassins. Is their meeting a coincidence? Destiny? Or part of a terrifying strategy? And will Zephyr keep Meadow from discovering the haunting truth about her family?
