Sarah is spending the summer working at a resort, even though it means missing her favorite soap opera, Willow Heights. Things get exciting when they find that the star of Willow Heights lives on a private island near the resort. Why is everyone so tight-lipped when it comes to the famous actor? Sarah and Ellen find out more than they ever wanted to know when they sneak onto Ellis’s island, and Sarah discovers that even the immensely wealthy can have dark and ugly secrets.
