Her clique of popular 'good kids' are in shock as they wake to find their friend dead, facedown, in the murky water of the docks. But Liz hasn't gone anywhere. She's still around to witness the aftermath of her death. And it soon becomes clear that there's far more to her family and so-called friends than met the eye when she was alive . . .
