Patch Cipriano isn't your ordinary high school student. This one comes with a dark past that he would like to leave behind, abilities that only creatures in movies have, and an undying urge to become human. Nora Grey has buried her head in a book, not wanting to face the truth about her life or the world around her. She's the perfect prey. As Patch and Nora have a battle of wills, there are doubts about each other. Is being human that important? Is he really that bad of a guy? Would finding love here be a terrible idea?
