17-year-old Cassandra returns home after being abducted for a year. What people don't know is that she was never kidnapped.
The police soon have doubts about her story. Not that she should be surprised. Cassandra and her friend, Paul, faked the whole thing. And Cassandra must protect herself even if it means having Paul confess to a crime he didn't commit. Cassandra is determined to keep her perfect life because people can never learn the real reason she pulled an elaborate stunt. To escape her abusive father.
Cassandra's new boyfreind, Chuck, and best friends Robbie, Elena, and Dylan also become tangled in her lies when she must tell them everything about her kidnapping debacle. Whether they tolerate her theatrics is another question.
If life weren't complicated enough, Cassandra must deal with her identical twin sister, Lucy. Cassandra left her behind while on the run, proving Lucy is the one person she should fear more than the cops.
