Heurtée de plein fouet par un chauffard, la jolie Jane est laissée pour morte dans un rosier. Elle ne se souvient pas de ce qui s'est passé, mais d'étranges messages laissés sur le miroir de l'hôpital et des menaces téléphoniques instillent en elle le doute : a-t-elle réellement été victime d'un accident, ou quelqu'un a-t-il vraiment tenté de la supprimer ? Qui ? Serait-elle en train de perdre la tête ? Et si le tueur était tout proche ?
Jas thinks that everyone has a super power. Everyone, that is, except herself - unless you count her extraordinary ability to get herself in trouble.

Little Life Lesson Number 5: when you go to prison, try not to be wearing a bikini. But despite a few 'mishaps', Jas finally solves the case. And to top it all off, Jack ISN'T evil, and has a bit of a crush on Jas too. Perhaps she does have some super powers after all...
