As her thirteenth birthday draws closer, Bethany’s parents begin acting stranger and stranger. Things get even weirder when they whisk her away in the middle of the night and drive her across multiple states to leave her at an aunt’s house that she has never heard of or met. Before her parents desert her a snippet of conversation between her dad and Aunt Myrlie reaches her ears, but Bethany has no idea what her dad could mean by: “She doesn’t know anything about Elizabeth.” Now Bethany is in a new town, and people keep looking at her as if she's a ghost. Who do they think she is? Her aunt isn’t helping her figure out why she has been dropped off and why everyone is behaving so oddly. After a bizarre package arrives Bethany’s suspicions reach full gear. The strange man who is following her everywhere isn’t helping. What does this he want with her? Why is everyone acting like they have seen a ghost? Who is Elizabeth? Will Bethany ever see her parents again, and will she ever figure out what is going on? Bethany doesn’t plan on stopping her search until she has answers, so be prepared to bite your nails as you wait to solve the mystery.
