Can the summer get any worse?

For sixteen-year-old Penn, it seems probable. Her dad moved out and is acting like a moody teenager. As someone who used to be mister dependable, he’s suddenly irritable and withdrawn. And what will he say if she doesn’t make the golf team?

During a qualifying round, Penn hits her shot into an adjacent cemetery, discovering an unearthed grave and a vial of TR-97. When she learns the drug is a treatment for PTSD, she vows to meet the disgraced psychiatrist who developed the therapy.

Convinced TR-97 will cure her dad, Penn gives up golf to focus on the mystery. With help from her friends, Penn uncovers secrets about the drug. But, as she faces increasing threats from others who covet the vial, Penn must choose between helping her dad and saving herself.
