About The Book

There's no place like home...and no end to the nightmare...

Samantha is in her last year of high school at a very exclusive all-girls school in upstate New York. It has been four years since she gave birth to her daughter and since the death of her sister, Cassie.

One day, Samantha’s roommate, Ellie, convinces her to attend a fraternity party. There Samantha meets a handsome young man named Ethan. The two develop a romantic relationship, but Samantha’s memories of her rape prevent her from consummating their union, and she confesses to Ethan that she has a daughter.

He is surprised, but promises to attend her graduation and meet her father and uncle. But when Ethan brings her back, Samantha discovers a wild party going on in her room, and her girlfriends, including her roommate, Ellie, mock Samantha. Thinking she’s also lost Ethan, Samantha walks out, unaware that circumstances will soon culminate in a shocking series of events—including madness, betrayal, and murder.
