Melody Stewart’s last year of highschool was suppose to be the year where she focussed on her grades, got into a respectable university, and most importantly: not fall in love. Especially not with her new English teacher, Ian Carter. Already having lied to him once over the last week of summer, Mel is afraid to face him and fears what will happen when he finds out that she’s a senior. But Ian wasn’t exactly "honest" with Mel, either. His mysterious disappearances, swift reflexes, keen intelligence about irrelevant things and the ability to speak in several different languages fluently have Mel thinking that Ian may not really be cut out to what he says he is. As their relationship begins to grow, they will both have to face the reality of Ian’s second world head on without turning back. It wasn’t exactly how Melody had planned to spend her senior year — but no one had informed her that the forbidden fruit always tastes the sweetest.
