Teen twins, Meghan and Colin Jacoby, have never questioned their uncle’s only rule to live by–never stay in one place for too long. Instead, they’ve traveled the countryside with him in his travel trailer moving from place to place for nearly thirteen years, never having a reason to question why he chose this unsettled life–until now.

But as these encounters and events get stranger and scarier and become all too real, the true quest reveals itself and the adventure will take on a whole new meaning–to unravel the mysteries about their past and revealing why they have to stay on the move, as well as discover where they truly belong and if there’s such a thing as a place called home.
