Ever heard the phrase ‘can’t win for losing’? I think they put that on my birth certificate, just under ‘father unknown’. And mother unknown, too, for that matter.
But there are a few things I do know:
One: I will never, ever return to my adoptive family willingly or alive.
Two: They would prefer it that way, even though they want me back.
Three: I have a secret so great that I will do anything – anything – to protect it.
But it turns out my friends have some pretty whopping secrets of their own, and we’ll have to trust one another and stick together if we’re going to make it out of this mess alive.
