High school junior April Corrigan is the sweetheart of Springside Academy in Virginia. She’s a “red-hot” tennis player (Duncan, 1989, p. 1) and in love with Steve Chandler, her boyfriend of five months. On a regular day at school, April is called to the office from her typing class. Her grandmother, Loreli, is waiting to take her home to pack, so the family can go into hiding.
