t's about this girl who just moved in with her aunt and uncle because her mom had past away and her dad is a famous actor and can't take care of her. So she has to start all over, at lunch she meets this boy come to find out he doesn't really go to her school, he just needs her help. His little sister was kidnapped by his step dad and the police have stopped searching for them, but he believes that they could be in her small town. Tracy (the main character) doesn't know much about the town, but agrees to help him, and little does she know what she's getting herself into. They go to where he thinks his step dad's apartment is and he sends her up there to check it out, from what she can see there is no sign of a child except for a picture of his little sister on the side of this man's bed. While driving around they go past a house that Brad (the boy she's helping) insists is his step dads car. So they go and look through a window and come to find out it is his step dad's car and he says it's his little sister inside, they are all eating dinner and Brad thinks that they should come up with a plan to get his little sister back. So they decide on Tracy going to babysit for these people one night and Brad will come get his sister then tie Tracy up so it looks like someone kidnapped her and so she wouldn't get in trouble. Well, there plan is working so far, Tracy is there babysitting and the parents just left. Brad comes in and they are getting Mindy's (his little sister) stuff together, when the father comes back to get the tickets he forgot for the play they were attending that night after dinner. He freaks out at the fact that Brad is there and orders him to leave, while in the process of making Tracy call her aunt to come over and finish watching his kid, Brad walks in with a gun and starts making orders. From there, everything falls apart.
