Branwen Riley has no idea who to trust. She's had the Gift since birth, but she has no answers for the leukemia threatening her life. When she's asked to enter a treatment program that may offer a cure, she comes to suspect that the geneticist in charge might only be interested in passing her Gift on to others. Her best friend Cecily is dating the geneticist's son Nico, and now she's spiking Branwen's IV. When Cecily dies in an attempt on Branwen's life, the only person who might have the answers is Nico. Can Branwen discover the truth, or will she be next to die?
