Zen, a fourteen year old lesbian, living in the closet to everyone but her closest friends, Anna, Steffy and Kate, is the daughter of the county sheriff. When two younger girls from her former middle school go missing the week that Zen, Steffy, Kate and Anna are starting high school, they abandon the safety of a cave in the mountains above their childhood homes to join the missing persons search. Along the way, they encounter the high school "rapist" and his cronies, a mountain lion, and cope with the discovery of a dead body.

The missing girls are trapped in the pit below a dilapidated outhouse in the remote mountains and Zen, Steffy and Kate are able to rescue them. Book ended by the story of a grown up Steffy's prosecution of a capital criminal case involving a Trans Man's homicide in 2023.

A coming of age story that bests the likes of STAND BY ME and SUPER DARK TIMES with the style of WINTER'S BONE.
