With a father who’s never home and a step-mother who’s abusive, Julia doesn’t feel at home, she doesn’t feel loved. She works her hardest to receive the best grades with the hope that they will take her somewhere far away. Away from her family, from her uncomfortable surroundings, from her cruel classmates. Trust is fragile and love never lasts: the views that control her life. Then Jace comes along and appears to be the only one who might understand, but Julia still has fear. Unwilling to confide to him about her stepmother, there’s a distance between them that she’s too afraid to close. He tries to pull her close, but she clings to her only prayer, to fly away.
