Fifteen-year-old Lyra Roberts has her life right where she wants it to be. She is cunning, clever, and outspoken. She is popular in her school and has friends who would do anything for her. She has loving parents and a protective elder sister.
But little does Lyra know that there is more to her than just being a typical high-school bully. There are things she must know. She is in trouble. So are her sister and her city. Will she be able to handle the cold truth? Will she be able to learn to adjust to the new life awaiting her?
