From an award-winning author comes a spellbinding story of two young women at the turning points in their lives, when each must choose to accept the life she has, or leap into the one she might yet live

A moment. That's all it takes. A bewildering moment when the world spins upside-down, and then life can never be the same again. Arrow was just a girl when she saw something no child should have to see, and she's still haunted by this childhood tragedy. And Marika is living a sister's worst nightmare, from which there is no escape. When Arrow and Marika come together in a small seaside town, they meet a mysterious "magician" who says he knows how to escape the now and step into a new future—and the girls are tempted by the possibility of a way out. This is a striking and bittersweet story of loss and courage, with a surprising twist.
