Fitting in. It's the most widely-known concept to high schoolers. But when August Omeria moves to Alabama, fitting in is the last thing she'll do, especially after she meets the Outbackers.

An enigmatic aura enveloping them at all times, these boys practically scream danger and mystery. Whether it's being chased by ruthless gangs, cliff-diving for the heck of it, or bike racing in the midst of a tornado, they've been through it all.

So when August stumbles upon the group doing drugs in the forest behind her house and bumps into Aris Kender while he's escaping the town's most brutal criminals, she doesn't quite know how to react – to be enchanted by their unfathomable, alluring nature or be intimidated by their precarious way of living.

In a turn of unlikely events, August finds herself a spot in the group. But everyone knows that when two differing forces clash, all hell breaks loose.
