Way too young, eleven year old Tucker Creed and his six year old neighbor, Sylvie Bissenette, find they have something awful in common. Creed then decides he’s going to do everything in his limited power to shield his Sylvie from her ordeal. So he does and Creed and Sylvie form a bond that grows and blossoms with their ages.
They plot to leave their lives behind, the town they live in that will hold them down and the histories they share that, unless they break free, will bury them. Sylvie goes to their special place, Creed never shows and she doesn’t see him again until it’s too late.
With Creed gone, Sylvie is forced to endure a nightmare and do the unspeakable to end it. To deal, she develops a hard shell with sharp edges that very few can break through. So when Creed again finds his Sylvie, he discovers the girl he loved is locked away and he has to find his way back into her heart without getting shredded in the process.

Lu en VO. J'ai trouvé le roman long et très moyen surtout par rapport à la série "rock chick" du même auteur que je venais de finir. Même ville, même intrigue. Sylvie est détective privée et on croise Hawk entre autres personnages des Rock Chick. Pas très original, donc.
Son histoire d'amour avec Creed se règle à 1/3 du livre, ensuite tout va bien, ils se réconcilient, sont d'accord sur tout, tout le monde l'accepte même l'ex-femme, les enfants, bref on a un peu l'impression d'un monde tout rose où tout le monde est gentil pour nos deux tourtereaux. Du coup, puisque tout va bien, comment remplir 2/3 du roman? Par des flash backs sans intérêt, beaucoup de guimauve et de bla bla.
