Shaylie is a typical fifteen-year-old girl from a religious family. Terrence, on the other hand, is not your average boy.
To Shaylie, Terrence has always been the enigmatic, aloof, talented and temperamental older brother of her best friend, who has never given her a second look. Until they are thrown together in a date.
Their first date sparks an unlikely romance that confuses Terrence, who has long pushed people away because of a secret he has kept throughout his life. But Shaylie is patient with him, giving him a chance to feel things he has never felt with anyone else before.
Will they overcome the challenges that stand in the way of their budding love? Or will a happy ending ultimately be too much to ask for?
