I prepared myself to release the bow that I held steady in my arms. I can feel the muscles tensing in my arms as my eyes met his. I blew out a quick breath as i felt my heart quicken when i saw the eyes that i knew i could recognize anywhere. After all, I spent most of third period avoiding his gaze because i knew what looking in his eyes does to me. The eyes that bring up foreign feelings; feelings that i can't explain. For a second I faltered, my resolve slowly crumbling as realization and denial following one right after another. Then, in that moment, I had absolute clarity; and nothing could prepare me for what happened next. 

 Zoe Belvino was always the loner chick that nobody notices. That was until she moved to small town Arrow Creek deep in the middle of nowhere. This is the place her dad claims can change their lives forever. Well it did, but not in a good way. Now she has everyone's attention especially one blue eyed boy that just can't seem to take a hint. Does that mean she can finally cross off having her very own stalker off her bucket-list. If it was ever on there to begin with. Zoe is about to find out how dark her new home can be with all its dirty little secrets.
