Sixteen-year-old Laken Stewart died last summer.
Her resurrection at the hands of the Countenance hasn't run smoothly. With the memory of her past life still firmly intact, Laken moves deeper into the Countenance organization in an effort to free her mother and sister from the deadly Celestra tunnels. The love she feels for her boyfriend, Wesley, is compromised when gorgeous Cooper Flanders teams up with her in the fight to free their families. Old bonds are slowly severed as new ones are galvanized. Wesley is sure that what he and Laken share is special but when it becomes apparent that she's reading his mind, he's determined to get to the bottom of her true intentions. And one thing is for sure, the Celestra that's giving her these powers is going to have to pay. Wesley's love for Laken takes him to dark places he never believed existed, and what he discovers dismantles his world as he knows it.
