In the summer of 1976, Aurora Gray’s teen world was turned upside down when her big brother Gideon and his best friend Jeremy disappeared. Two years later, she unexpectedly finds Gideon’s journal and sees it’s been written in again. Recently. By him.
There are secret messages coded within the journal’s pages and Aurora’s determined to follow them. She confides in the only person she can trust: Donovan McCafferty, Jeremy’s brother. The two set out on a road trip of discovery and danger—the mystery they uncover forever changing the course of their lives.
…But Now It Was Happening Again
Decades later, in 2014, Aurora receives a terrifying phone call that her adult son is missing. This news inevitably brings the memories of her adolescent years rushing back. Can she find her son—quickly—and hopefully prevent the trauma of the past from repeating itself?
