Nefertari "Terry" Hughes has three rules for surviving high school: 1. Don't attract attention. 2. Don't get involved. 3. Don't' make trouble. A year after the accident that left her disabled and took her mother's life, sixteen-year-old Terry just wants to keep her head down and survive her new high school. When she catches the eye of cute basketball star Zach, all hopes of flying under the radar are gone. She is thrust even further into the spotlight when Fraser, the editor of the school newspaper, learns that her father is the renowned archaeologist overseeing the new Egyptian display at the museum, which is rumoured to include Cleopatra's sarcophagus. When Fraser stumbles upon the fifty-year-old mystery of a girl who vanished in the museum and Terry's father falls into a mysterious coma, Terry is caught up in a whirlwind of events that leads all the way back to ancient times.
