First when her dad died and her mom became a workaholic,completely cutting off thier relationship, then to escape the pain her ex left behind when he cheated on her. More recently though, nasty rumors seem to be swirling around her and she can't seem to escape them. One day, while she's running, she meets a boy named Tristan. They become good friends, and she really starts to depend on him, but when she learns that the girl he is "in love" with is the one that is starting all the rumors, what is she going to do...and how does Tristan react?
