Beatrice Hartley has no plans for the summer - except a secret reunion with her five former best friends. Once upon a time, back at Darrow-Harker School, they were the cool kids, the beautiful ones. Then the shocking death of Jim - their creative genius - changed everything. One year after graduation, Beatrice is returning to Wincroft - the seaside estate where they spent so many nights sharing secrets, crushes, plans to change the world - in the hopes that she will get to the bottom of the dark questions gnawing at her about Jim`s death. She suspects that her friends knew much more than they ever let on. But as the night plays out in a haze of stilted jokes and unfathomable silence, answers seem unlikely. Her friends are all so different now, so splintered and lost. It`s too late. Beatrice senses she`s going to live the rest of her life far away from them, never knowing what really happened. Then night fades to morning. A thunderstorm rages, and a mysterious man knocks on the door. He looks like the exhausted ringmaster of a cheap traveling circus. Blithely, he announces the impossible. And so begins the Neverworld Wake. The nightmare. The nothingness.
