16 year old Shelby Thompson lives in Springville, Utah with her mother and father, three brothers and a sister.
Shelby went to church every Sunday, and Ky, a boy in her Sunday-School class and in her high school, started to date.
Their relationship was getting stronger and stronger, but on the day of their graduation, Ky gets in a car crash, and dies. Shelby is heartbroken at the news, and believes that she can never love again.
As her last year of high school comes around, Shelby hears rumors spread that a new boy has come to town and goes to their school.
Shelby is great at making new friends, so she plans on meeting the new boy at a coffee shop. She waits until a boy walks up to her, announcing he is the new kid. His eyes are icy blue, his skin is a little darker than Shelby's, and he has shaggy dark brown hair. He announces to her that his name is Alex and he comes from Boston, Massachusetts.
Shelby is mesmerized at the cute boy, and she somehow makes through the day with a new friend.
Later on, they start to get more and more friendly, until prom rolls around. All the girls woo over Alex. They flirt with him, get all quirky, and try to make him like them.
Shelby is then angered by this, but lets them do what they want, but what she doesn't know is that Alex wants to take HER to prom.
Two days before the prom, Alex asks her, and she says yes.
On the night, Alex accidentally reveals a deep secret that he held on to for a couple of years. Will Shelby accept him for who he is, or will she turn him down and leave? Find out in 'Deep Secret.'
