After an accident leaves her orphaned, naïve rich girl Aurora Riley moves to the sullen lake city of Port Ashton, Ontario, a town where most kids have no money. Shy and reclusive, but hell-bent on fitting in, Aurora finds herself mixed in with the wrong crowd - including Griffin Salazar, a boy who hides behind his skateboard and a hoodie.
Griffin only shows what he wants people to see, but Aurora looks beyond his bad reputation to the gentle person inside. However, outside of school, Griffin's life is far from ordinary, and the more Aurora gets to know him, the less she understands him.
With Port Ashton's high crime rate and Griffin's shady background, Aurora pieces together the truth - that he's involved in something she can't wrap her head around, something that might put them both in danger. But can Aurora save Griffin, or will he be the one to tie the noose around her neck?
