At Darrow-Harker School, Beatrice Hartley and her best friends were the cool kids. Then the shocking death of her boyfriend Jim changed everything. Now, Beatrice is returning to Wincroft --- the seaside estate where they spent so many nights --- hoping she'll get some answers about Jim's death. As the night plays out, Beatrice senses she's never going to know what really happened. Then a mysterious man knocks on the door and announces the impossible: time for them has become stuck, and it can only resume if the former friends make the harshest of decisions. Now Beatrice has one last shot at answers...and at life. And so begins the Neverworld Wake.
