After a devastating accident takes Jess's parents, a cold and controlling uncle is the only family she has left. Ripping away everything she's ever known, he takes her far from her home in the big city to live on the rural family estate.  With a spoiled and stuck up older cousin the only other young person in the home, Jess struggles to adjust to her new life of loneliness and quiet isolation.  
While exploring the woods surrounding her home one day, she stumbles upon a mysterious boy.  Desperate for a friend, she's instantly drawn to him, but he's deeply distrustful and wants nothing to do with her.  Sneaking away to see him, she works hard to break through his walls and slowly gains his trust.  
As time passes, their bond grows from forbidden friendship into something more, but the threat they'll be caught looms closer.  How far will Jess have to go to protect the boy she's fallen in love with?  Or will her uncle find out about them before she can escape his control?
