Thirteen-year-old Ali knew her mother was different from her friend's.  She seemed to be afraid of many things, was way too protective of her, and always seemed stressed and tense. Ali didn't realize then that her mother had a closely guarded secret - one that had haunted her since childhood.

Ali thought her summer at the lake babysitting her niece would be the perfect getaway.  That was until the strange little girl showed up.  The little girl named Sissy - who had secrets of her own.  Soon Ali learns of the horrible secret her mother has been carrying all of these years.  Someone wants revenge for what Ali's mother has done.  Will Ali be the one paying the price?
