Cassie never got to see her hometown.  The day she was born, they drowned the town.  The lever was pulled and everyone cheered as the town sunk beneath the water never to be seen again.  The lake where the town was submergered is off-limits and no one is allowed near that area.  It has been 12 years since the town disappeared but Cassie still feels drawn to the town she has never seen.  She and her friend Liam sneak in and swim in the area where the town was and believe they can see part of the town under the water.  What will they find when they explore the area?  And what questions will be answered?
