Amikor feljön Londonba, hogy összecsomagolja nővére holmiját, feltárul előtte Bee életének néhány különös, megmagyarázhatatlannak tűnő mozzanata: egy eltűnt macska, egy eltitkolt vidéki ház, rejtélyes hétvégi utazások. Így hát Ana, ahelyett, hogy visszatérne Devonba, megkeresi Bee legjobb barátait, és azután a bolondos Lol és az erős, csendes Flint segítségével megpróbálja kideríteni, mi is történt valójában Bee Bearhornnal, az egyslágeres popsztárral.
