Contrary to popular belief, serial killers aren't usually loners. In fact, many of history's most notorious murderers had spouses and children. Eight-teen-year-old Emma Wolf is haunted by the victims of her father's crimes. She constantly feels like she’ll never be part of this world, but just a spectator watching normal people go about their lives. She couldn't go back and make amends for her father's crimes. She thought she had things figured out: join a few good causes, be a good girl, eat all her vegetables. Never lose control. So when her aunt finds out she's been invited to join the kid's from her local church for a week-long trip to South Padre Island, she pushes Emma to go. Why else would she - the most socially awkward, fact spewing outcast - spend the first week of summer with a bunch of kids, who she has nothing in common with? So much for not losing control.
