It was an accident. That was what the authorities said killed Charlie Kim's parents. And in Charlie's mind, that was how it had to be. An accident meant closure. It meant that the driven fifteen-year-old could move on, reassemble his life, and return to pursuing the carefully planned future that he had laid out for himself.
But when memories of his parents begin to vanish and suspicions arise, calling the accidental nature of their deaths into question, Charlie can't help but begin to doubt himself and the motives of those around him.
Doubt leads to discovery as Charlie uncovers secrets that forever change his life and thrust him and four other teens--fellow orphans--into the center of a underground conflict that dates all the way back to the War in Heaven.
