Ellie Sakes is sick of her life.  She's tired of her ex-boyfriend, her dead-end job, her mother's criticism and memories she can't shake.  Then her best friend comes up with the solution.  She can get a job in the Hamptons for the summer --  hot dates, glitzy parties, fun people.  What more could she want?  So Ellie jumps at the chance.  She is caring for a four-year-old boy who hasn't spoken in months.  His icy stare and demonic laugh bother Ellie.  When she begins to receive intimidating messages and ominous gifts, she knows she is in trouble. But who could be behind the messages?  Her outlook for the summer has just taken a nosedive.
