One night, Q is basking in the predictable boringness of his life when Margo, dressed as a ninja, persuades him to partake in several hours of mayhem. then she vanishes. While her family shrugs off this latest disappearance, Q follows Margo's string of elaborate clues - including a poem about death.

Q's friends Radar, Ben and Lacey help with the search, and a post turns up on a website: Margo will be in a certain location for the next 24 hours only. The race is on! After an epic drive through the night, they catch up with Margo, and Q learns first-hand that the way you think about a person isn't the way they actually are.
