by Octavia Reese
Fourteen year-old Taryn doesn’t have a social life to be slain in walled-off forgotten Detroit. Plagued with a strange rash and haunted by dreams of her late mother, Taryn avoids human contact as much as possible. But when her grandmother goes missing, Taryn finds herself in the middle of a cyclone of deception and she is suddenly racing against the clock to save the Hibouleans, terrifying shapeshifting relatives she never knew she had. Along with newfound purpose, confidence, her best friend and, awkwardly, her longtime crush, Taryn embarks on an adventure that transforms not only her inner narrative, but reshapes history for her people.
