On a journey to the far sides of the world-the destination may be only the beginning...
Petra and Shivani, best friends since freshman year of college and now on summer break, have planned the adventure of a lifetime, a backpacking trip through Latin America, from the ancient ruins of Mexico and Guatemala, to the glistening coasts and shores of the Caribbean, to the mountains, jungles, and rivers of storied South America.
Looking forward to this opportunity to prove their mettle, to forge a new chapter in their lives, to truly know themselves for the first time, their travels begin with equal parts excitement and anxiety. Relying only on their wits and the kindness of strangers, they will find the world to be bigger, and filled with more wonder and beauty, than they could ever have imagined.
But not all is as it seems. An unrelenting stalker, mysterious signals in the sky, an inexplicable door in the jungle, these are only a few of the encounters along the way that will force the two young women to ask-just what really does await them at the end of their journey, at the end of all their exploring?
