Her friends think she's delusional. Her father thinks she's lying. Drew is just trying to survive. She's not the average 16-year-old girl. Raised in her dad's antique shop, Drew knows everything about antiques and very little about tech. And this works for her. At least, until she begins to receive chilling texts that make it clear she's being watched; messages no one else can see. Drew is powerless, haunted by fear that the messages aren't real, that she's slipping into a delusion of her own making.
Then, one of the messages predicts a death. A young girl is murdered. Amid the grief, an unlikely love interest grows. The stalker becomes more controlling, the messages more terrifying. And a love she thought was real may never have existed. Then, as friends begin to die, Drew realizes that, in some way, she's tied to their deaths.
With only old-school tech and knowledge of the past as a guide, she tries to solve a deadly mystery. But how can she fight an anonymous, invisible cyber-killer? Can she prove, even to herself, what is real and what is just an illusion? And then a chance comment changes everything. There's only one way to find the truth: to save the others, and perhaps herself. And it's not virtual—it's very, very real.
