The world thinks that pop superstar Kiara Anderson has it all, but she spends her nights drinking away memories of her childhood and life as a teen runaway.

The Jacobs family are desperate to see the girl next door again and discover why she ran away, especially their son Shane, who blames himself for her disappearance.

When Kiara’s manager forces her into a reveal-all TV interview she knows the family she loved more than her own will finally discover the truth.

Can she overcome her demons or will the shadows of the past rob her of fame, fortune, and a chance to finally fall in love?

Ms. Buckley gives us extraordinary characters in unbelievably disturbing and tragic detail.
