- There is a book without a title, not secret, but hidden. Those who know about it just call it The Book, and pass it quietly from hand to hand. It was there from the very beginning, and they say it contains the story history forgot... When Jake first meets his fellow student Noah Rosenthal he makes a rash promise: to tell him the forgotten story. But he has never written anything like this before, and he has only ten days to do it in. So will The Book be ready to be handed over on Noah's birthday?
