The time by the lake is everything perfect about a childhood summer. And maybe, these nights also hold the answers Max is looking for . . .
To get Max and Rosie’s minds off their mother’s mysterious disappearance, their grandmother suggests that they visit the old log cabin where their mom spent her summers as a child. That first night in the cabin, Max and Rosie share an identical dream of new friends, sunshine, and play. Only . . . it may be more than a dream.
As Max slowly grasps what is really going on, he wonders if he might have found the key to the mystery of his mother’s disappearance—and how to bring her safely home.
