a skeptical Roxie rules out the other possibilities—like Lincoln created this
delusion to escape his abusive father—she accepts her gut-deep knowledge of the
truth. But someone has been screwing with her light, using it to commit crimes,
and their actions are about to cause irreparable damage to two worlds: the one
she lives in, and the one she can’t remember.
Aided by her best friend
Jordan, her boyfriend Tucker, and Lincoln, Roxie tracks down the criminal and
uncovers many more secrets not only of her past, but of the history of their
race on Earth. And then Roxie faces a horrible dilemma—the only way she can
stop them from ripping apart both worlds is to fuse with her light…which could
be tainted by the evil with which it was used.

When she’s not writing young adult adventure novels, she does freelance editing and project management. She and her husband have two daughters, one of whom is also a novelist. (The other one prefers math. Smart kid. Practical.) You can learn more about her and her books at www.njdamschroder.com.
So why does everything suck so much? It’s not enough that her angel-assigned mission prevents her from going to college and forces her to lie to her parents. The cool powers that come along with being half angel? She sucks at them. The awesome boyfriend who helped her save her soul? He’s totally jealous and clingy, just because he saw Roxie get kissed by the only other angel hybrid her age. And now, she finds out that angels aren’t the whole story. There are shadows, too, and a centuries-old battle between angels and shadows that has somehow put Roxie right in the middle.
Forget fake homework and the easy, memorable summer-before-college she’s not having—the stakes are suddenly life or death, and the main casualty could be the one person she can’t live without.
