Chyna Greer was sixteen when her best friend, Zoey, disappeared. Though very different in looks and temperament, the two girls shared a bond that was stronger than blood. But even Chyna’s urgent warnings couldn’t prevent a love-struck Zoey from sneaking out to the lake to meet her secret crush—and being swallowed up into the warm summer night forever….
 
Now Chyna has come back to her West Virginia hometown of Black Willow to lay her mother to rest.
