When Jarrod Grant was fourteen years old, some sort of a monster emerged from a portal in his room, grabbed his mother and little brother and then vanished with them back into the portal from which it came. Jarrod, whose father was a soldier that had been killed eight months earlier, was now left completely alone in the world.
Four years later, Jarrod is now a senior in high school. No one ever believed his story, and the therapists all said that he’d deluded himself into believing it because he couldn’t deal with whatever horrific events had caused the disappearance of his family. At school, he was treated like some kind of a freak and an outcast. That is, until he met Tina and Sarah – two girls who believed his story and decided that they were going to make it their mission to help him find the answers he so desperately needed.
They’re joined along the way by a new friend named Derek, who has a tragic past of his own, and a woman named Patricia who knows things that only a very few others in the world could even dream of. Together they’ll discover the truth of what happened to Jarrod’s family on that fateful night, and it’s a secret that will send them down a path that some of them may not return from.
