Darcie finds herself drawn to Roman and is soon confiding in him about her troubled family and her search for her father. But what Roman asks in return is more than 16-year-old Darcie ever bargained for.

In one of the more unusual and thought-provoking stories about the perils of falling in love with an older man, lonely sixteen year old Darcie finds herself risking her life for Roman, an attractive, caring zookeeper, whose gentle demeanor hides a dangerous obsession with death. In a starred review, Booklist called this stunning look at the dangers of neediness and distorted love, "a strong story that builds to a knife-edge climax."
