It was all her idea. They would get away from their parents and spend the weekend camping. Down by Salvation Creek, the five of them would make smores, steal kisses, share secrets.
But sometime around midnight, she vanished.

The clock is ticking. What are they hiding? Who is lying? Dark truths must come to light if their friend is to be found…
