Meet Samantha McGregor

She seems like your average teen, but Samantha is unusually gifted. God gives her visions and dreams that offer unconventional glimpses into other people's lives and problems. It's a powerful gift with a lot of responsibility…


Samantha’s brother. Zach, is finally home after a ninety-day rehab for his meth addiction and life seems to be getting back to normal. That is, until Sam starts having dreams about dangerous situations involving drugs. But her visions are so vague that she doesn’t know who needs help. Of course, she’s worried about Zach staying clean, especially since he’s hanging around with the wrong crowd and now that the entire school seems to be buzzing about drugs, Sam doesn’t know who’s using and who’s not. What is wrong with these people anyway?

After Sam has a vision of a burning cabin, she’s convinced that Zach is somehow involved. She must choose between getting Zach into trouble or saving his life.
