She is scared. Alone. Only eleven years old. And the target of a nationwide manhunt. But why? Because Rachel is the most dangerous person in the world. Hunted by the people she escaped from, she cannot remember who she is, or why she is so important.

As they race to solve the puzzle of Rachel’s lost memory, her true identity emerges. And it is a secret so powerful that no one can imagine its devastating effects . . .
