While awaking in the hospital, Kara believed she saw angels in the hospital, walking souls that no one else could see. Then the strange visions began . . . moments of time where she could see images on people. All the signs seemed to piece together like a puzzle for her to solve in order to stop someone from experiencing an unfortunate fate. To escape the confinement of a mental hospital, she learned to keep her ability secret and keep up the charade of perfection for her mother. Her next puzzle brings her close to Anthony, a mysterious boy from the wrong side of town, and as she sees the flash of a gun on a fellow classmate the stakes are raised higher than ever before. Can Kara solve this puzzle before it’s too late, without falling into a dangerous fate of her own?
