Erin has problems. Her parents are divorced. Her stepdad is a jerk. Her real dad, while willing to help her run away from them, insists that she hole up in a high school for psychics so she can complete her senior year. Why does he think this is a good idea? Well, that would be problem number four--ghosts. As in, she sees them, the reason Dad thinks specialized schooling is a good idea.
Although Erin has doubts, she quickly learns that high schools are pretty much the same everywhere. In fact, the only difference in this school and her last is the number of students who attend--way less--and her afternoon classes, which are all held in the Mind Studies Annex.
Since Mom is certainly looking for her, Erin keeps her circumstances a secret. Nervous, shy, and doubting her abilities, she's still able to connect with a couple of other students. But it's only when Erin meets Trace, a stone mason helping renovate the school, that she begins to relax. Her beloved dad is a mason, too. Trace is wonderfully blue collar. Even better, he's not a mentalist like most of the guys on campus are. In fact, she feels very grounded whenever she's with him.
But even down-to-earth Trace has his secrets. And the nature of them could be another problem Erin has to worry and wonder about.
