At the age of seventeen, Taylor Ford stood in front of an enraged gunman in a school shooting and told him to shoot her in order to save her younger, more promising sister.
Two years on, and Taylor has survived. But her parents don't know what to say to her, and she's losing track of her life in a rapidly declining manner. She's her little sister's hero, and she is a town celebrity, but she sees the stares.
Two years on, and Taylor is idolised, misunderstood and miserable.
She wants out.
If it has to be, permanently.
But standing atop of Dove's Bridge, on the edge of ending her life, she is confronted by Jason Cole, a twenty year old, attractive and concerned fry cook.
He too is tired of stares and whispers, and the constant criticism he recieves, due to the fact that he is the brother of Liam Cole, the gunman who shot Taylor two years ago. He too wants out.
Talking Taylor off the bridge, he sees a potential kindred spirit, and the idea is sparked to leave town on a roadtrip. These two unlikely companions take off on a desperate bid to re-find themselves and shake off their pasts.
But sometimes, the past shapes the future, and as feelings spark between Taylor and Jason, it might not be such a bad thing.
But will Taylor ever be anything more than 'the girl who saved her sister'?
