All Renee Ward ever wanted out of life was two things: Good friends to share her love of fantasy and fairy tales, and for magic to be real. When her family moves to the quaint coastal town of Waterside, it seems as if her dreams have finally come true. But after a visit from the mysterious Blake Carter, Renee's new utopian life suddenly turns into a never-ending nightmare. 
With the line between fantasy and reality blurred, the teens find themselves the unwilling pawns in a deadly game of cat and mouse. Their very survival now hinges on Renee's overactive imagination. Unfortunately, that's also what got them into this mess.

That’s like the biggest invasion of privacy ever!” “It’s not like that,” he sighed. “Look, do you remember every single thing that’s ever happened to you in vivid detail? No, you don’t.

This gave Blake the opportunity to run back toward the beach where he would have more room to maneuver. He was glad he sent Renee away. She was probably mad at him, but it was for her own good. Blake was looking forward to repaying the monster for a lifetime of abuse and Renee didn’t need to be a

He could know something that would help us.” “That would be a first.” Blake’s voice dripped with sarcasm, but his tone softened as he turned back to Renee. “Let me do it.” “Blake, no,” she said with a sigh. “I’m not afraid of what I’ll find in there.” “But I am,” he said quietly, taking a step closer to Renee so that he could circle her waist with his arms and leaned his head in close to hers. “We’re supposed to protect

The woman squeezes enough unpaid hours out of me as it is.” He looked up and noticed Renee. A beautiful smile played at the corner of his mouth, causing her to blush. “Well?” he said, turning an amused eye

punched in the stomach at Blake’s rejection, until she realized how it looked from his point of view. She was in the body of Dr. Grantham, the man who had tried to kill them, and she had just tried to kiss Blake with the doctor’s lips. “Oh my gosh! I’m so sorry!” she squeaked. “Blake, it’s me… I mean, I’m not the doctor, I’m Renee!” Blake’s eyes narrowed, but his expression softened slightly. “How?” Renee spun around and saw Dr. Gasparo staring at her as if she were an alien. “This is
