Separated for years due to a secret squabble among their parents, a group of cousins reunites following the death of an uncle. Their mission is to help close up the family cottage for good, but in doing so, they uncover old family photos that include a woman in a wheelchair.

No one knows who the woman is, but they have a vague memory of her presence and the loud scream they heard the last time they saw her.

As the teens sort through the family's past and learn its secrets, they each learn truths about themselves.
“A character-driven mystery that would be a solid addition to high school libraries.”
