                           is dealing with her brother’s death the only way she can—by re-creating Jake’s daredevil stunts. The ones that got him killed. She’s not crazy, okay? She just doesn’t have a whole lot of respect for staying alive.

Jaycee doesn’t expect to have help on her insane quest to remember Jake. But she’s joined by a group of unlikely friends—all with their own reasons for completing the dares and their own brand of dysfunction: the uptight ex-best friend, the heartbroken poet, the slacker with Peter Pan syndrome, and Mik. He doesn’t talk but somehow still challenges Jaycee to do the unthinkable—reveal the parts of herself that she buried with her brother.
