Jaye wakes up in the hospital, disoriented, and beset by a slippery morphing of reality into something else. She repeatedly sees a boy who she feels like she knows --- but that's impossible. Determined to get back to school and back to "A Midsummer Night's Dream," in which she's starring, she lies to her sister, her mom, and her doctors --- she’s fine, she says. But then on her first day back, she takes a seat in class . . . next to the mysterious boy.
