When Jeff's best friend Mike disappears in the fall of their senior year, Jeff starts to doubt everything he's ever known about their small town, and the familiar people in it. What happened to Mike? Jeff has got to find him. Then Jeff starts to have vivid dreams where he hears Mike say "Come get me." Their friend Kirby is in the dreams, too, but Jeff's afraid to tell him. For with every dream, Jeff feels the power of his bond to Mike, and he also sees that Mike may have had another life, one that Jeff knew nothing about.
