About the Book

Ariel Silverman is a normal girl, making plans for college, when her mother revels she has breast cancer. On top of this Ariel is still recovering from the loss of her best friend, Jeni, who vanished without a trace on a school trip to Berkeley. This event has closed Ariel's heart and changed her forever.
As she tries to adjust to college life in a new city, Arial cannot let the mystery of Jeni's disappearance rest and finally takes the now-dormant investigation upon herself.
Ariel's journey will take her into a world of astonishing beauty, sexual discovery, and danger. In an old house in the Berkley hills she will meet three enigmatic and seductive strangers who make her feel fully alive for the first time since she lost Jeni.
But there is more to these three than what meets the eyes, and through them Ariel will face a chilling choice and unravel just what happened to her missing friend.
