Chapters 1 and 23 are in the present when Torey is attending Rothborne boarding school as a senior. He is living in a dormatory. Chapters 2-22 are in the past when Torey is attending a high school in Steepleton and living at home. Present Torey moves to a new town to Rothborne boarding school and begins his senior year. As he starts thinking about how his year will be, he remembers how strange his junior year was, in particular, his former classmate Christopher Creed, who disappeared without a trace, except an email to the principal.
The only clue! Past Torey, with friends, reads the email from Chris. It hints at both suicide and running away. The email also mentions Torey and one of his friends, among other classmates, as guys who have "everything" This makes Torey more concerned about Creed's disappearance and what has become of him.
