Maybe it's better that way. As captain of the Ellis Hollow diving team, with straight As and solid friends, he's only one semester away from securing a scholarship and leaving his past behind. But when a family history project gets assigned at school, new memories come rushing to the surface, memories that make Theo question what he really knows about his family, the night of the fire, and if he can trust anything - including his own mind.
