Lana Granger, a college senior, seeks out a job. She's quickly hired as a babysitter for a troubled boy. Lana feels she can handle his peculiarities. Meanwhile, Lana's roommate goes missing, and Lana doesn't quite share the truth about her whereabouts at the time of the disappearance.
There were several times when things got a little far-fetched or unbelievable, but I was too engrossed in the storylines (yes, there were a couple) to let them bother me. I was always eager to get back to this engaging and intricately woven book when reality required me to put it down.
