But just when things can't get any worse, along comes a life-changing experience in each story that is just as unsettling as the threatening weather.

Amy's a heroine when she saves her rafting group--but Sawyer's sudden interest keeps her from wearing her familiar cloak of invisibility. Panic attacks have ruled Angela's life--until she faces something far worse than she ever could have imagined.
