Tavia Michaels is the sole survivor of the plane crash that killed her parents. When she starts to see strange visions of a boy she’s never spoken with in real life, she begins to suspect that there’s much about her past that she isn’t being told.
Tavia immediately searches for answers, desperate to determine why she feels so drawn to a boy she hardly knows. But when Tavia discovers that the aunt and uncle who took her in after her parents' death may have actually been responsible for the plane crash that killed them--and that she may have been the true intended victim--she flees for the safety of Camden, Maine, where the boy she sees in her visions instructs her to go.
Now, Tavia is on the run with no one to trust. No one, that is, except for her best friend and longtime crush, Benson.
Tavia feels torn between the boy who mysteriously comes to her at night and the boy who has been by her side every step of the way. But what Tavia doesn't know is that the world is literally falling apart and that to save it she will have to unite with the boy in her visions. Only problem? To do so would mean rejecting Benson's love. And that's the one thing Tavia Michaels swore she'd never do.
Tavia: Susan May Pratt
I love her! Have since I saw her in both 10 Things I Hate About You and Center Stage. She’s so striking, but doesn’t have that “Hollywood” look that so many actresses have.
Benson: Jared Padalecki ten years ago
Not the Ripped-Mr.-Supernatural guy that he plays now, but the gangly quiet guy he was in Gillmore Girls. Seriously JUST like this picture. But add glasses. Why do actors never have glasses!?!?!?!
Quinn: Ian Somerhalder
Because he has the eyes!!! So, make his hair golden blond (a little more like it was in LOST, but even more blond) and this is exactly what I see in my head when I think of Quinn. Mmmm, eyes . . .;)
Reese: Reese Witherspoon
Clearly I lack some subtlety on this one.:D Right from the first time I wrote about her, Reese was always, always Reese Witherspoon. She is small and blond and misleadingly sweet, but she is so smart and sharp and amazing! Don’t trust that cute look!
Jay: Greg Kinnear
Okay, I chose this picture specifically because Greg looks so confused. Jay is the epitome of the absent-minded professor. He is a brilliant scientist and just wanders through life looking confused. But, trust me, he’s NOT! :)
