Yasmin used to love living on an apple orchard with her family. She loved going out into the orchard in the mornings to pick the apples with her family, running around with her brother and their dog while her mom and dad would sneak kisses behind the trees when they thought nobody was looking. When Yasmin was twelve, however, everything changed. 
  
  Her mother died and then, slowly, so did all of the apple trees. As the trees started to lose their leaves and shrivel up, she watched her dad cure his broken heart with whiskey. She watched her brother turn into somebody unrecognizable. As the apples died, so did her family. 
  
  Even now, at eighteen, Yasmin lives with a dreadful sense of hopelessness in her small town with her twisted family and their stupid yet lovable dog. No way up, no way out. Yasmin is stuck. Until, of course, she meets Dex and he accidentally starts to change everything.
