Seventeen-year-old Lorna loves her adoptive sister, Callie. But Callie can’t say “I love you” back. In fact, Callie can’t say anything at all. Callie is an Iceling—one of hundreds of teens who were discovered sixteen years ago on a remote Arctic island, all of them lacking the ability to speak or understand any known human language. After certain events, the two sisters embark on a journey to the north, and Lorna starts to see that there’s a lot more to Callie’s origin story than she’d been led to believe.

Lily Bennett is less than thrilled to be the new kid as she starts her junior year in high school. But then she meets classmate, Cole Drepeau, with whom she forms an immediate and intimate bond. Then, Lily learns about the murder that divided the town more than thirty years before. In 1985, graduating senior Amber Greeley snapped, killing her boyfriend Ben—Cole’s uncle—and taking her own life. Lily feels inexplicably linked to Amber, and she can’t help but think that there’s more to the girl’s story.
