High school reunions. Nearly everyone is mildly curious about their classmates’ fortunes, but for some, the promise of soothing past hurts proves irresistible. Living in her native England, Jemma had largely forgotten about her traumatic senior year. But now that she’s back in America, that damned invitation keeps nudging her…reminding her of the unexplored path she’d been sure she was hers for the taking.
Shelby hasn’t fared as well as Jemma. Or maybe she’s just not been able to vanquish the past. No matter what has gotten her stuck—she feels like she’s fallen into quicksand. Maybe going to the reunion will let her connect with some old friends, to free herself from whatever is stopping her from living the life she was called to experience.
To most, the potential of meeting your old classmates again promises an evening of shared memories. For Jemma and Shelby, this reunion will change their worlds.
