Her one constant is Alex, always her protector, still trying to understand the unraveling of his idyllic childhood. But Lauren feels even more alone when Alex reveals that he's been in contact over the years with their imprisoned father—and that he believes he and his sister have yet to learn the full story of their mother's death.Then Alex disappears.
