The Quick family is responsible for keeping their town safe. They receive offerings, take something from the person, and use that to maintain the cliff on the outside of town. If they were to stop? Rocks fall, everyone dies.
The one rule of the Quicks is that they don’t steal from family. Guess how well that works? In the meantime, Aspen has been spending the summer with his grandma and aunt. Being the upstanding guy he is, Aspen gets his best friend’s girlfriend to break up with him by stealing her feelings for him. Then Aspen dates her.
Things get weird when he encounters a girl in town, a girl who he can’t steal from. The girl knew Aspen’s cousin, but doesn’t know that she died. It turns out to be just the beginning of a series of secrets and lies.
