Blood Highway by Gina Wohlsdorf

Rainy Cain is living a lie. Her friends think she lives with a hard-working single mom who isn’t very involved in Rainy’s life because she’s busy saving the lives of strangers. In reality Rainy’s mom suffered from a psychotic break years ago and doesn’t even recognize that her daughter exists. (Makes the living arrangements almost impossible to believe.) A few short weeks before her eighteenth birthday, a date Rainy thinks spells freedom for her, her mother commits suicide. As if Rainy’s life weren’t complicated enough things are going to get really strange really fast.

You need to enjoy books that start dark and then take a turn to midnight dark to like this one. This is one of the books that you’re going along fine, everything is making sense and then BAM! Sudden twist. Then BAM! Another twist. At a certain point I was sitting there wondering what just happened much like Rainy was in the book.

Rainy is a damaged young woman, understandably so, that doesn’t always make great choices but considering the circumstances she finds herself in I think she handles herself quite well. I absolutely loved Security by this author and while this one is not quite at the same level it is a twisted fun ride.
