Pan’s Whisper

Pan Harper is brash, loud and damaged.

Ordered into foster care, Pan is full of anger at her mother and older sister and is certain that she knows the reality of her past — until she meets Hunter, the boy who understands her story better than anyone else, and who just may be the key to unlocking the truth of Pan’s memories.

But are some memories best left forgotten?

And is Hunter worth Pan breaking her most important rule? Never. Trust. Anyone.
