"Everyone wanted to touch us. Including you. So remember the seven places you touched me That's where you'll find the truth. Start at the beginning. In my words. "...

Sisters, Mira and Francesca, lived an over protected and lonely life. One neighborhood boy, Ben, is able to reach Mira. In a strange twist the girls commit suicide, drowning in the quarry. The story starts with their deaths.

After their suicide, a letter arrives from Mira to Ben. Something between them will be clues to where more notes will be found. He will learn of their life and secrets. Will he ultimately learn why they died?

This young adult story is both dark and tragic. The story line is actually not even what I thought it was going to be. It was actually shocking, and so compelling in many ways. The chapter names are parts of the clues to where the notes can be found. What a journey for Ben, mourning the loss of the young girl he loved so briefly.
