Chris and April were sixteen, but they were already deeply in love. One day April has to move to California, and Chris is forced to stay in Virginia. They are loyal to each other for two more years until Chris turns eighteen, and then he sneaks out and flies to California to see her. But when he gets there, something is wrong. Terribly wrong. The only thing is, April won't tell him what it is. There's a big secret that she's hiding, and she promises to tell him about it when she's ready. He believes her, because she's never broken a promise. But then she makes one promise she can't keep. It's impossible for them to stay together, but Chris tests it anyway. After all, nothing can keep them apart. And that is what Chris tries so desperately to prove to April.
