“Hard time prepared me for many things, but playing research assistant to a flock of nerds wasn’t one of them.” Ethan Tyrell is out of his element at the College Scholastic Honors Program for exceptional students. But at least he’s out of prison. Keeping his temper and his hands to himself isn’t so easy when an irritating professor demands full participation with a mismatched study group, where he clashes with his roommate’s sister, Memory. Memory Erikssen is not the kind of girl a boy can forget; she makes sure of that. Quick with both a charcoal pencil and a lipstick, she won’t draw the same line or walk the same path twice, and antagonizing Ethan is a break from the usual academic doldrums. Ethan and Memory find themselves tangled together by more than their special abilities--and mutual irritation--as members of their team go missing, and they unravel a dangerous mystery that spans centuries of local and distant legends.
