Does River have a secret life? One even she doesn't know about?
Ever since 17-year-old River can remember, she's always had the real sense that she's in the wrong place — that 𝘴𝘩𝘦 is wrong. Because of this, she battles a constant restlessness that consumes her. Running is the only thing that helps.
Another reason she knows she's wrong?
She can see the light around a person. Everyone gives off energy and somehow, River can see a bit of it. She knows when someone's good or bad. She just doesn't know what a blurry light means, like the light around the creepy new kid, Wicked.
Upon seeing him, something inside her breaks open; a crack along some forgotten wall that frees a painful wave of raw emotion and faint visions. And an emerald-eyed boy that River doesn't remember but knows she should.
After Wicked reveals his violent, supernatural side, River's world explodes and everything she thought was real, fades away. Taken from her life in Georgia, River is forced into a dangerous but beautiful, self-sustaining-power-filled-live-in-the-trees-Fair world that has been impatiently awaiting her return.
