Roy contacts Cheyenne's father and asks for 5 million dollars but, he ends up only asking for 1 million wich will be split 4 ways.(Roy, Griffin, TJ, and Jimbo) The three guys leave for their money and leave Griffin at home to watch Cheyenne. Summary Falling Action Griffin learns what REALLY happened to his mother.

Cheyenne is wandering through the woods all alone when she hears a gunshot and a voice. TJ and Jimbo find Griffin and realize what he was doing and think if they should kill him and take his share of the money. Was that Griffin's life that was taken by a gunshot? Will Cheyenne ever escape? If she does, will her relationship with Griffin continue? To find out read the book. Book Review I LOVED this book! I would recommend this book to anyone who is having problems with their life they don't think they can overcome. I like this book because even though Cheyenne is blind, has pneumonia, and has no way of escaping she never gives up until the very end. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars only because i can't give more.
