It doesn't seem like it's been a year.  Mandy still misses her twin sister desperately.  The two had been best friends -- two parts of a whole.  And then the unimaginable had happened.  Angel ate a hamburger and died.  A lot of people got sick from the meat at the restaurant but Angel was the only one who died.  Ten year olds don't die from e.coli.  And now Mandy has tricked her family into leaving her alone for the weekend as they all go their separate ways.  If only Angel was here this could be lots of fun.  But she isn't.  And now, in the middle of the night, Mandy is awakened to the sounds of someone downstairs.  Who has broken into the house?
