Zara Kaplan has been sexually abused by her grandfather from a very young age. At sixteen, Zara runs away. In the city, Jay Thorndyke rescues Zara from the streets, and the unlikely pair become friends. Zara is plunged into a whirlwind of wild parties, alcohol, and drugs.
Zara’s friends have no inkling of her tormented past, or her checkered present. She can’t find the words to tell them of her horrific childhood. And she can’t bring herself to tell them about her new life. Wrapped up in their own troubles, Zara’s friends are oblivious to her plight.
Seeking relief from her tortured memories, Zara sinks deeper into an abyss of reckless oblivion, heading down a ominous road littered with sex, drugs, and death. Can her friends save her in time?
Pendulum will soon be available in paperback.
