"Cold Creek is a town where many girls go missing or killed. Hailey, who is 17, parents died and she is staying with her aunt and disgusting uncle who is a cop of Cold Creek. She discovers videos of naked girls from Cold Creek on her Uncles computer. He has his cameras everywhere. She decides she has no other choice but to run-away. She has help from a friend and began living in the woods for a year. <br/><br/>Soon after Hailey disappeared her friend Amber showed up dead off the Highway. Hailey knows her Uncle is the killer, but doesn’t know who to trust with this information. <br/><br/>Amber’s sister decides to visit and do her own investigation of her sister’s death and Hailey’s disappearance. <br/><br/>I loved this book, and I thought I had the ending figured out. But nope I was wrong. Filled with twists that kept me on my edge of my seat. Plus, apparently in Canada there is a Highway of Death, that many women go missing or murdered!"
