Returning to her small Alaska home town after her bipolar best friend's death, Corey uncovers chilling secrets about the townspeople and their treatment of Kyra prior to her drowning.
When Corey moves away from Lost Creek, Alaska, she makes her friend Kyra promise to stay strong during the long, dark winter, and wait for her return. Just days before Corey is to return home to visit, Kyra dies. The entire Lost community speaks in hushed tones, saying her death was meant to be. And they push Corey away like she's a stranger. With every hour, Corey's suspicion grows. Lost is keeping secrets-- but piecing together the truth about what happened to her best friend may prove as difficult as lighting the sky in an Alaskan winter.

An unsettling story of two friends in Lost, Alaska. When Corey leaves with her mom and brother for Canada, she leaves behind her best friend, Kyra, who is bipolar and has few friends. When Kyra commits suicide, Corey returns and finds herself an outsider as she tries to piece together what happened to her best friend. I was glad the book was not lengthy. I found the descriptions of what Kyra experienced in her bipolar mood swings horribly powerful, which is what I expect the author wanted the reader to know-that bipolar people have too much too deal with.
