Almost a year has passed since seventeen-year-old Payton Brave’s twin sister went missing; and Payton is starting to crack.
As the anniversary of Dylan’s disappearance approaches, Payton deals with the aftermath of being the girl left behind. Adding to her struggle is the fact she is unable to remember what she witnessed the day her sister vanished—or account for her recent out-of-body experiences. When the stress leads to several reckless outbursts, she is forced to the outskirts of high school society, and soon finds herself in a crowd of new friends—and a growing relationship with Dylan’s boyfriend, Cole.
Then Dylan’s case is partially revived when another missing girl’s body is recovered—a victim who looks eerily similar to Dylan. The more Payton attempts to pry open her blocked memories in hopes of finding Dylan’s captor, the farther down the path of danger she goes. As the darkness around her sister’s disappearance grows and the truth becomes more and more unbearable, what Payton finds might just cost her life.
