From the Back Cover
YOU MIGHT BE WONDERING WHAT A DIARY FROM 1991 HAS TO DO WITH YOU. YOU'RE ABOUT TO FIND OUT. THOSE WHO DON'T LEARN FROM THE PAST ARE DOOMED TO REPEAT IT . . .
Twenty-four-year-old Cheyenne Florian has just received her dream job offer. On the strength of a few vlogs, she's been recruited to be a new correspondent for the recently hatched Independent News Network (INN). With the slogan "Because independent thinking is the only way out," INN has branded itself as innovative. Yet once Cheyenne joins the team, she finds age-old dynamics at play.
Some of the female staff resent her meteoric rise, while a number of the men are only too happy to welcome her. Then there's the diary, written in 1991 by a female broadcaster named Elyse Rohrbach, anonymously left for Cheyenne. The mysterious diary is accompanied by a note urging her to learn from the past. She wants to believe it's intended as inspiration and friendly advice (or at most, a warning), but when disturbing--and increasingly dangerous--parallels begin to emerge, Cheyenne starts to wonder if something more sinister is at work.
It's almost as if someone is engineering the similarities between Cheyenne's life and Elyse's past, like she's a pawn in a very twisted game. But Cheyenne is determined to rewrite the rules and play her own game. Though they're separated by more than twenty-five years, Elyse and Cheyenne are now forced to learn the same lesson: Nothing is more threatening than a woman who doesn't yet know her own power.
