What he finds might be his undoing. Fifteen-year-old Willow Graves is exiled to The Hollows from Manhattan when six months earlier she moved to the quiet town with her novelist mother after a bitter divorce.  Willow is acting out, spending time with kids that bring out the worst in her. And when things get hard, she has a tendency to run away--a predilection that might lead her to dark places.Set in The Hollows, the backdrop for Fragile, this is a riveting story with devastating consequences. The result is Lisa Unger's most compelling fiction to date.
