Trapped in her white trash hell, Layla Danner is failing at life. 

Her friend Peyton? Everybody thinks he's perfect, a staggeringly rich, handsome, and well-mannered story book prince. But they don't know what Layla knows. And she'll never tell. 

Jake? Jake's trouble. A down and dirty charmer, this one's got a devil-may-care attitude and a mouth to match. 

Everything goes to hell in a handbasket when he shows up to town one summer. 

Layla never meant to fall in love. All she wanted to do was finish her senior year, get the hell out of this town and never, ever look back. 

But when mysterious secrets from the boys' past refuse to stay buried, Layla must decide how far she'll go for a chance at a once in a lifetime love. 

Follow three unforgettable characters in this captivatingly melodramatic, soap-operatic, and larger-than-life tale of first loves, loyalty, intrigue and the magic of growing up.

                              I've reread this book, and I still don't understand why he told her that. I know everything that happened, but I don't think that it makes sense for Peyton to tell her to stay away from Jake.
