"Laurie Halse Anderson's Speak meets Kathy Reichs' Virals." --bookseller Jill Moore, Square Books Jr.

New York Timesbestselling author CJ Lyons makes her YA debut with a taut, riveting thriller hailed as "an intense page-turner" by April Henry, bestselling author of The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die.


Diagnosed with a rare and untreatable heart condition, Scarlet has come to terms with the fact that she's going to die. Literally of a broken heart. It could be tomorrow, or it could be next year. But the clock is ticking...

All Scarlet asks is for a chance to attend high school--even if just for a week-a chance to be just like everyone else. But Scarlet can feel her heart beating out of control with each slammed locker and vicious taunt. Is this normal? Really? Yet there's more going on than she knows. And finding out the truth might just kill Scarlet before her heart does...

Praise for CJ Lyons: "A great thriller-action packed, authentic, and intense." Â-#1 New York Timesbestselling author Lee Child "A pulse-pounding adrenalin rush!" Â-#1 New York Timesbestselling author Lisa Gardner "A high-stakes adventure with dire consequences." --New York Timesbestselling author Steve Berry "A compelling new voice in thrillers...the characters come alive." --New York Timesbestselling author Jeffery Deaver "Harrowing, emotional, action-packed and brilliantly realized. CJ Lyons writes with the authority only a trained physician can bring to a story, blending suspense and friendship into an irresistible read." --New York Timesbestselling author Susan Wiggs
