Drew is the basketball star. Her best friend Sam is the smart one, the reader.
When Drew goes abroad for a basketball trip, she receives the worst news of her life.
Her best friend is gone.
Then a boy in the coat closet at Sam's funeral claims he was Sam's boyfriend, which is crazy, because Sam didn't have a boyfriend and wasn't into punks.
If Sam was here, Drew could tell her what happened in Hong Kong.
And all the things she is afraid are going to happen.
Thanks to the boy from the coat closet.
