When she realizes that Portia, who is bipolar, has been missing for four days and that she is off her medication, she sets out to find her. With a lead from Portia's housemate, Emma, she heads for their old home in Willow Park, Illinois. Portia somehow got it into her head to find an old schoolmate of Holly's—and Holly's high school crush—Joshua Hunter. Holly finds Josh in a popular Chicago bar, surrounded as usual with admiring females.Though she now detests him, she can't help noting he still has loads ofgood looks and charm.
