Encountering a mysterious and supportive web of real-life women, the pair become players in what is called The Game. Samantha is revealed as the Game's Fire Keeper and gives each girl a gift to summon help in times of danger. Back in the city, Gemma's life is threatened, while Alice's tormentors wait in her own family.
