Gone to the wolves / John Wray.

Wray, John, 1971- (author.).


Kip, Kira, and Leslie are outliers, even in the metal scene they love. In arch-conservative backwoods Florida in the 1980s, just listening to heavy metal can get you arrested--but the risk is worth taking, because music is what leads them to each other. As different from one another as they are, the three form a family of sorts, one safer and more loving than the broken homes they come from. Together, they make the pilgrimage from Florida's swamp country to L.A.'s fabled Sunset Strip--but the beautiful new life they dreamed of soon proves a mirage. Kira finds herself drawn to ever darker and more extreme strains of metal, drifting toward a place where her two friends, for all their love, can't follow. On a trip to Europe for her twenty-second birthday, she simply vanishes in the middle of a show. Years later, the shocking truth about her disappearance reunites Kip and Leslie, whose search for her takes them from California to the snowbound woods of Norway. But bringing Kira home will require a greater sacrifice than either can imagine. -- Provided by publisher.
