"You know, there are two reasons why people don't talk about things; either it means nothing to them or it means everything." It's a year after Connor Mathews hung himself in his bedroom, leaving his best friend Danielle lost and confused. The two shared everything since they were toddlers, so where were the signs? Why did Connor believe the world would be better off without him? Even though Danielle is familiar with loss, this hits her like a bullet in the gut. Connor and Danielle were partners in crime. Together, they crashed every party and broke every standard. It was them against the world. But with Connor gone, Danielle is just a lonely outsider with a slight temper and a high probability to self-destruct. As if senior year wasn't overwhelming enough. Although she wants too, Danielle can't avoid Connors older brother's desperate attempts to reconnect forever. And when she strikes up an interesting conversation with the clever Will Conway at a lousy house party, then somehow becomes unlikely friends with the bubbly girl from English class, she begins to wonder if maybe not all surprises are bad. But without the answers she needs to erase the ambiguity surrounding Connor's death, how will Danielle maintain a happy and healthy life? Is it possible to live a hopeful life even in the face of everlasting unanswerable questions?
