Seventeen year old James Castle Jr. has rugby to deal with the pressures of high school. Fights with his girlfriend, his dad’s constant blame game and graduation anxieties all work out on the field. Every pass, tackle and scrum works out a kink.    That is until rugby gets suspended.     Without rugby as an outlet James has no idea how to deal with the feelings of fear plaguing him since the break-in at home. Now, James keeps seeing a little girl with pigtails everywhere. Great, he can add delusional to the list of shit he can’t deal with.     What makes the situation worse, if that’s possible, is this little girl looks a lot like the new girl at his school, Claudia.  He can’t explain the connection he feels to Claudia, it’s not lust or friendship even, but it’s there.     All of it ties to one event; a hit and run accident he was the victim of fourteen years ago. An accident he doesn’t remember. An accident his father never told him about. An accident that wasn't in fact an accident. It seems someone from his father’s past is hellbent on revenge and this time they plan to make sure James is dead.   James must remember the past or else be lost in a killer's crosshairs.
