Sometimes wishes do come true. How they’re handled—that’s scary. 

College freshman Maire returns home for Thanksgiving break to discover her abusive father is missing, and mom has redecorated. All she’s ever wished for is to see an end to the fighting.


A close friend, Colton, hints that a mysterious urban legend might be real. In order for it to work, she has to be an active participant.


Could this be the solution she seeks?


If she doesn’t get involved, and her father returns, will things go back to the way they were? Maire struggles to make the right decision—for her long suffering family and herself.
