Twelve-year-old Jeri McKane lives far from home at Landmark boarding school. When her roommate, Rosa, and a van full of classmates vanish, the school and parents rush to solve the mystery of the girls' whereabouts. Jeri is confused by the headmaster's secretive behavior and the lies of the reporter who's called in to help crack the case. Eventually, Jeri feels God leading her to investigate a nearby abandoned house in the woods. There, she finds the girls and their missing teacher and uncovers the truth about their disappearance.
Jeri prays often for God's help and guidance. She often recalls verses from the Bible when she needs wisdom. The story of Gideon serves as an inspiration to Jeri while planning an escape for her kidnapped friends. She decides to search the woods for her classmates because she believes she senses God telling her to look there — although she does question whether she's being guided by God or is just "doing something stupid.”
