Maggie wants to forget, heal, and hide, but her aunts place harbors secrets that complicate the plan. Worse, the trauma Maggie hoped to leave behind has followed her, haunting her in ways she cant control. Her troubles intensify when she begins to receive messages from another student who has survived a rape on her old campus. When Maggie musters the courage to answer her emails, the young woman goes silent.
