Young people are often highly resilient and can often survive the most horrendous trauma. Or can they? Carl Mueller kws something about parental betrayal. His birth mother abandoned him as an infant in the front seat of a car parked in a shopping center. With the loving support of his adoptive parents, he's grown into a champion high school golfer with hopes for a scholarship to a major university and the opportunity to take over a successful family business. Then right at the end of his senior year, he becomes infatuated with the mysterious Lori Darling, and their relationship tests his loyalty to everything and everyone he's ever kwn. Lori Darling's mother died when she was a little girl, and since then her life has quietly spiraled out of control. At first glance, the high school junior appears to everyone to be a phemenal basketball star bound for glory on the court. However, appearances can be deceiving. The more time Carl spends with Lori, the more he senses that something is horribly wrong, something possibly unimaginable. When he finally discovers the terrible truth that threatens to shatter the bond they share and derail each of their promising futures, Carl risks his own life to find the answer to the question that haunts them both... Who is Lori Darling?
