High school football player JoeE lives a challenging life. He has a strict father, with extremely high expectations of him on the field and in the classroom, who does not permit childish emotions or other such behaviors. As for his mother, JoeE has grown up without her. She is missing, and it's presumed the worst has happened. But despite all that, what challenges JoeE the most is the veil of deceit that has been draped over his family for as long as he can remember. The secrets are stacked up and locked away, keeping him from knowing the truth about anything-including himself.
One day, his father dies from a sudden heart attack, and JoeE finds himself on a cross-country journey to live with relatives, unaware that a remarkable thing is about to happen: the chest that holds JoeE's family secrets unlocks, slowly revealing long-hidden truths. But what comes to light may harbor challenges greater than JoeE has faced yet.
Thus begins a unique, new series of books about secrets, lies, and the damage they cause. It poignantly depicts how deception deteriorates lives like a poison, and hammers home the fact that no one can outrun the truth.
