Casey begins having strange dreams of a cloudy, foggy room where she meets her future self. The subject they discuss is murder. Their own! If she can believe a dream, it seems neither the current or the future Casey has very long to live. If that weren’t bad enough, on her way to school she encounters an actual spot of dread in the woods that only she can feel. That’s very unpleasant and she has no idea what it means but she's way too busy to think about dread and dying! Dreams aren't real, anyway; or are they? Unfortunately, Casey will have to believe in them if she wants to live long enough to turn in her project and maybe make the newspapers! With the help of her older self, Casey has to figure out how to prevent her own murder, twice.
