Artistic prodigy Juliet Brynn wants to survive 1982 with as little social torture as possible. But then her sketches start to come true and Damon Sheppard, a boy with a troubled past, shows her worlds she never knew existed. When unthinkable trauma strikes, will Damon and her prophetic gift prove as catastrophic as some predict, or can they impart Juliet the power to make everything right again?
"I started to pray for help to come, for God to save us. Then I stopped. I swallowed another mouthful of my own blood. If God even existed, he obviously didn’t give a crap about me." -- When Juliet begins to shape the future by drawing it, she must discover the source of her newfound power of artistic prophecy and the key to making it work. But when her trust and her future are betrayed by the very people who condemned Damon, she must learn to discern right from wrong, truth from deception, the honorable from the predatory. And when everything she knows and loves is taken from her, she discovers a power at work in the universe which forges paths into places most people choose never to go.
