New York Times bestselling author Neal Shusterman delivers a suspenseful and thrilling novel that's perfect for fans of Unwind and UnWholly. Tennyson is not surprised, really, when his family begins to fall apart, or when his twin sister, BrontAl, starts dating the misunderstood bully, Brewster (or The Bruiser, as the entire high school calls him).
