The dead girl's parents are grieving a lot, but something tells Jenna that they're only sharing half of the story. For instance, where is Callie's sis? They claim she's been living "overseas" since the tragedy happened, but it all just doesn't add up in Jenna's head.
And soon, when she finally meets Nate, Callie's sweetheart, he makes a terrifying revelation. So, now she's confident that the poor girl didn't pass away in an accident. The big question is - how DID she die? The heart recipient is obsessed with finding out what really happened, but this new "quest" could very well cost her everything, including her family, her psyche and even her very life.
