Love had never been in the equation for Nora Sayafi.
That is, until her sixteenth year, when she falls in love with the quiet boy on the piano, Elliot.
Suddenly, Nora finds herself faced with emotions she can hardly comprehend, let alone act upon. After all, if there was one thing her crumbling family had taught her about love, it was to stay the hell away from it.
She's safer that way, anyway. Love ran on the currency of trust, and she had very little of that to offer- what with a lifetime's worth of secrets on her shoulders.
But secrets always come back to you.
As she finds herself drawn to Elliot, Nora struggles to keep her painful past buried. Every day, a new relic comes to surface- with it, the risk of losing it all.
And when a familiar stranger arrives on her doorstep- that's when the trouble, really, really begins.
