#4 The Aftermath


Blessed with good looks, a popular girlfriend, quick wit, and a wealthy family, Jason has everything he could want—but everything is not enough. There is emptiness—something unsettled in his soul. Partying provides temporary relief, but the haunting emptiness always returns once he is sober. He can’t stand being sober. When a tornado strikes his town, Jason’s drug dependency puts one of his classmates, Andy Rosetti, in danger. After Andy is taken away on a stretcher, the guilt and regret that Jason feels lead him to a paradoxical place of darkness and illumination. Jason soon realizes there is more than one life at stake in Montgomery and stronger forces at work than nature—but is it too late?
