"If that one moment hadn't happened... things would have been so much different."
Kayla has a secret. A secret dark as night. A secret deadlier than any truth. A secret that shattered her life forever in a single moment. Something has the power to change everything in her town forever. A secret so ruthless, she has locked it away on the inside. A deed that is slowly killing her to do. Not even Kayla's older sister Elena, her guardian since their parents deaths, can break through Kayla's walls and figure out what brought her little sister down to her knees. Kayla might just be so far in this, that maybe she can't get pulled back out and is beyond the depths of saving...
Enter Jordan Kelly.
A new boy that just moved into town. A boy with secrets all his own that he isn't too keen to let out anytime soon. What stories is this boy keeping on the down low exactly? Soon, Kayla has become the girl he just can't tear his gaze from. There is something about this strange quiet girl that just draws him to her. And Kayla just can't shake this boy away from her no matter how hard she tries and slowly cannot deny the attraction and sense of safeness and security this boy somehow makes her feel.
Can he figure out the deadly little secret she is hoarding in her mind? Will something more than just friendship be a result of this slow, but just as strong, bond? Or is Kayla too far in the darkness of her depression that she just can't get pulled back out?
And most importantly, when Jordan's deadliest secret is exposed, will Kayla be able to handle it? Or will it tear them apart and she'll evict Jordan from her life forever?
Only time will tell...
