DEDICATION

To Richard, M and V, the loves of my life. And to Grandma and Brian, who are forever in my heart and always missed.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

Special thanks to the following people, in no particular order: Lora Lee, for her spectacular cover art; Shannon Aviles and her team at More Than Publicity, including Stephanie Scofield, for EVERYTHING; early readers Eve Silver, Kristi Cook, and Mom (who, BTW, exposed me to Stephen King's horror novels early in my impressionable life); beta readers V and AT, who gave me the teenage perspective, whether I was ready for it or not; and my editors Maria Ribas and Martha Trachtenberg, who helped me polish this baby up.
