Beka heads back to school with a new-found faith, but that faith is tested sooner than she expected. As she spends time with the eclectic theatre group, she is pulled further into her friendship with Gretchen who has become fascinated with the occult and convinces Beka there is no harm in the tarot cards, crystals, and spells that their group of friends is dabbling in. Beka also struggles in her growing relationship with Mark, who is pressuring her to spend time with him behind her father's back. In the midst of all these shifting alliances, Beka must decide where her true loyalties lie.
Beka heads back to school with a newfound faith in the second installment of this young adult series. But that faith is tested sooner than she expects when her friend Gretchen becomes fascinated with the occult.
When Beka heads back to school with a newfound faith, she expects some special feeling, some enlightenment, something different. But what she feels is - nothing. In fact, what she faces, with her first step in the door, is a series of tough choices. First, there's the demanding drama production where Gretchen, the most powerful and popular girl in school, has landed the lead. For some reason, Gretchen takes an interest in Beka, and Beka finds herself enjoying the popularity. But Gretchen's attention comes with a price - a smear campaign against Beka's Christian friend, Lori. Gretchen's fascination with the occult threatens to lure Beka into the dark web of tarot cards, crystals, and spells. Then there's Mark, who wants to spend time with Beka behind her father's back. And the youth group her father wants her to join. And the tension of winning back her siblings' and her father's trust. Not to mention her studies. It adds up to pressure and confusion Beka may be ill-equipped to handle. Eventually she is forced into a decision about where her true loyalties lie.

I knew I wanted things to be different. Even sort of believed they could be different. But something happened as I walked down the hall that first morning after the New Year. The first time I walked down the hallway of the school I had attended for the past two and a half years. My first time as a new believer. What happened was . . . nothing. Absolutely nothing. I still felt very much like the same Rebekah Madison of two weeks ago. And I began to wonder if anything was really going to change at all.
