When teen hacker and foster child Wick Tate finds a dead classmate's diary on her front step, with a note reading "Find me," she sets off on a perverse game of hide-and-seek to catch the killer.

With the help of oh-so-cute hacker-boy-next-door Griff, can Wick find her tormenter and save her sister?
