Reagan is a typical seventeen year old, excited about prom, picking a college, and hanging out with her friends and boyfriend. That is until a family camping trip goes horribly wrong. Is she losing her mind or has she just stepped into a world she thought only existed in books? Caught in a web of worried parents, competing boys, Wiccan relatives, protective amulets, and psychiatrist babble, Reagan must determine the truth before it’s too late.
She and her friends go to the best parties and want to impress their boyfriends, even though Reagan isn’t sure about her feelings for hers.
“Back to clothes,” Serena said, seeming to sense her friend’s desire for a change of subject. “Clare has a swimming pool and a hot tub, so new bikinis are definitely in order. Then, we need some cute dresses to go over.”
The rest of the car ride was filled with talk of clothing. Reagan was relieved. It was a nice distraction from figuring out her feelings for Dex.

“Reagan went to her closet and pulled out some super-short denim shorts and one of her favorite Hollister t-shirts. Then she headed into the bathroom. Looking at her arm, she was astonished to find the scars were barely visible. It was nearly impossible to tell she’d ever been attacked.” Chasing Memories, pg. 74
As her haunting dreams intensify, Reagan’s Nana gives her a necklace—an amulet against the pain of loss and the fear of what is happening.
Reagan took the package and pulled off the top layer of paper. Inside were two wrapped items. She opened the biggest first. It was a candle with a strange symbol carved on its side. She rubbed her finger over the image. It looked like a bird’s footprint but with a longer line coming down from the center. “What does it mean?”
“I’ll tell you once you open the second one. Go ahead.”
In the second package, Reagan found a silver chain with a silver medallion dangling from it. The same symbol was emblazoned on the metal. She looked up at Nana for answers.
“It’s called Algiz, and it’s a symbol for protection. Put the candle by your bed and wear this for me. They’ll bring you, well, let’s call it good luck,” Nana said.
