Nefertari “Terry” Hughes has three rules for
surviving high school:
#1 Don’t attract attention.
#2 Don’t get involved.
#3 Don’t make trouble.
A year after the accident that left her crippled and took her mother’s life,
sixteen-year-old Terry just wants to keep her head down and survive her new
high school. When she catches the eye of cute basketball star Zach — who
happens to be the boyfriend of mean girl Allison — all hopes of flying under
the radar are gone.
She is thrust even further in the spotlight when Fraser, the editor of the
school newspaper, learns Mr. Hughes is the renowned archaeologist overseeing
the new Egyptian display at the museum, which is rumoured to include
Cleopatra’s sarcophagus. Fraser’s research leads to the fifty-year-old mystery
of a girl who vanished while on a school trip to to the museum along with an
artifact that may be Cleopatra’s asp.
When Mr. Hughes falls into a coma and his co-worker claims it’s the curse of
Cleopatra, the stakes become too high for Terry to ignore. Terry must work with
Fraser and her new candy loving friend Maude to find out what happened fifty
years ago in hopes of saving her father before time runs out.
