Seventeen-year-old Ryan Poitier Sharpe is a gutsy, outgoing girl who spends her summer days hurling herself out of planes at her parents’ skydiving center in the Mojave Desert. Fiercely independent and willing to take risks, she challenges those around her to live life fully. But after a brush with death, Ryan is severely altered—she’s not the same thrill-seeking girl she once was and seems to be teetering on the edge of psychosis. As her relationships crumble and her life unravels, Ryan must fight the girl she’s become—or lose herself forever—in this eerie and atmospheric thriller.

About the Author:

Southern California native and private pilot Tracy Clark is the author of Mirage and The Light Key Trilogy.
 

From School Library Journal:

Gr 10 Up—In the beginning of this psychological thriller, Ryan Sharpe is a 17-year-old adrenaline junkie seeking the love and approval of her ex-army father, who has post-traumatic stress disorder and runs a sky-diving business. When Ryan's latest reckless attempt at skydiving gets her put on restriction, she dives into experimentation with LSD. After a bad trip almost leaves her dead, Ryan sees life and herself very differently. As she fights the demons that chase her and tries to restore herself to the girl she once was, her journey to sanity is tested in many daunting ways. The action is breakneck. Told in first person, this novel takes readers into a mind-boggling world of hallucinogens and their effects. Ryan struggles to determine whether her terrorizing experiences are a result of the aftereffects of the drugs, a latent mental illness now surfacing, or something otherworldly. Readers are likely to walk away with an impression of the dangers and consequences of mind-altering drugs. Threads of supernatural elements are woven throughout, adding intrigue but also undermining a more realistic depiction of mental illness. Descriptions of Ryan's physical features emphasize her biracial identity, though they sometimes border on stereotype. VERDICT An additional purchase where YA psychological thrillers are in high demand.—Margie Longoria, Mission High School, TX
