Amy Ross brings readers an inventive modern retelling of Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
Lulu and Jek are science nerds, and have been best friends since they were young…or at least they used to be. Lately Jek has been pulling away from Lulu, just as she’s coming to terms with how she really feels about him. Just as she was ready to see if there could be something more between them.
But Lulu’s thoughts are derailed by the arrival of a mysterious new guy showing up at local parties. Hyde is the definition of a bad boy, and everybody knows it…but no one can seem to resist his charms. Girls can’t stay away from him, and guys all want to be him. And even though Lulu’s heart belongs to Jek, she can’t deny his attraction either.
She also knows that’s there’s something not quite right about Hyde. That the rumours of his backwoods parties sound a little more dangerous than what any of her friends are accustom to. And she doesn’t like the fact that Hyde seems to be cozying up to Jek, and that they seem to be intertwined in ways that have Lulu worrying for Jek’s safety.
If Hyde has a dark secret, Lulu is determined to find out what it is, and to help Jek…before it’s too late for the both of them.
