Mimi Shapiro had a disturbing freshman year at NYU, thanks to a foolish affair with a professor who still haunts her caller ID. So when her father offers the use of his remote Canadian cottage, she’s glad to head up north. The key is hidden where her dad said it would be, so she’s shocked to find someone living there—Jay, a young musician, who is equally startled to meet Mimi. What’s more, he accuses her of leaving strange and threatening tokens inside: a dead bird, a snakeskin, a cricket soundtrack in his composition. But Mimi has just arrived, so who is responsible? And more alarmingly, what does the intruder want?

From Publishers Weekly

May 04, 2009 – Wynne-Jones (Rex Zero, King of Nothing) creates a tale of twisted family ties that begins with a college coed running from an affair turned sour. Wanting to get as far away as possible from NYU—and the professor who is stalking her—Mimi heads to Canada to stay at her artist father's long-abandoned country cottage. When she arrives, she is startled to find the house occupied by a stranger, Jackson (Jay) Page, a half-brother she didn't know existed. After the siblings agree to temporarily share living quarters, more surprises are in store as personal items go missing and Mimi has the eerie sensation of being watched. In chapters focusing on a local and his mother, readers get hints about the big picture, but suspense remains high as the book races to its climax. The characters have strong voices and personalities—their realness, coupled with the idyllic setting, contrasts starkly (and thrillingly) with the story's dark side. If the number of letches and unbalanced individuals that Mimi attracts appears extreme, readers will probably be too caught up in the action to care. Ages 14–up.
