17-year-old London native Amy Smith never thought for a second that she could have so much more out of life. She was content to sit in her backyard garden under her white rosebush, avoiding her family and spending time with her unwelcome German-born boyfriend, 18-year-old Andreas Hartmann. However, the year is 1940 and all German citizens in England are being rounded up and hauled off to internment camps. Terrified for his safety, the young lovers flee together, only to be separated by German bomber planes. Amy's only hope to see the love of her life again lies in the hands of a 17-year-old Russian teen named Ivan Kozlov, the mysterious, complex, and seemingly dangerous leader of a network of teenage spies that live in underground tunnels throughout England. But as Ivan gets his hooks deeper and deeper into Amy's heart, she is torn between her loyalty to Andreas and the endless charm that Ivan presents. To make matters worse, all is not well in Ivan’s paradise. She herself is soon caught up in playing a significant role in something that has the potential to destroy all Ivan’s ever lived for. These two seemingly unrelated events soon come together in a most undesirable way, with one very unlucky girl caught in the middle. Amy has a choice to make: Andreas, the man she’s love since she started high school, or Ivan, a very disturbed, lonely boy that desperately needs companionship...
