Ben touched seven parts of Mira Cillo: her palm, hair, chest, cheek, lips, throat, and heart. It was her heart that broke her. After Mira’s death, Ben picks up the pieces to find notes she left him in the seven places that he touched her. Her notes explain why she and her sister, Francesca drowned themselves in the quarry lake. How Ben interpreted these notes has everything to do with the way he was touched by his gym coach a long time ago. But the truth behind the girl’s suicide is more complicated then Ben imagined involving a dangerous infatuation, a deadly miracle and a crushing lie.
