When Katie Kitrell is shipped off to boarding school by her distant father and overbearing mother, it doesnt take her long to become part of the It Crowd. Shes smart, shes cute, and shes an Olympic-bound swimmer who has a first class ticket to any Ivy League school of her choice. But what her new friends, roommate, and boyfriend dont know is that Katie is swimming away from her past, and from the schizophrenic older brother, Will, who wont let her go. As Katies star rises, her brother descends deeper into insanity. And when he does the unthinkable, its all Katie can do to keep her head above water.
