Leaving your house in the middle of the night.
Knowing your mother is doing her best, but she’s just as scared as you.
Starting a new school, making friends.
Seeing how happy it makes your mother.
Hearing a voice, calling out to you.
Following the signs, into the woods.
Going missing for six days.
Remembering nothing about what happened.
Something that will change everything…
And having to save everyone you love.
