Self-proclaimed nerd, BrookLyn Scott, is an eighteen-year-old high school senior in upstate New York who has never held a boy’s hand let alone one’s interest. She has some friends at school and church but is never far from the watchful eye of her abusive parents. BrookLyn’s plan is to escape the abuse by excelling in high school and running safely to college just as her older siblings did. Her plan is derailed after she’s invited and attends her first party. By the end of the night, BrookLyn finds out that church friend, Gabriella Michaels wants more than a friendship, and although her head says no, her heart thinks of the possibility. BrookLyn is focused on her escape plan while flying under the radar of her father’s swinging belt when she is thrust onto an emotional roller coaster. The question is, when the ride ends, where will BrookLyn stand?

Her parents strictly enforced their no dating before eighteen rule discouraging her from seeking more than friendships. Graye was focused on hanging with her best friends, doing her homework, playing sports, and staying away from the pranks her sisters Sylver and Blu conjured up.

Out of nowhere a mesmerizing glimpse of her best friend, Mackenzie, sends a jolt of confusion and distraction dancing down her spine. The abrupt arrival of her feelings ignite anger and fear in Graye. Thoughts of Mackenzie begin invading every aspect of her life contradicting what she always assumed it would be. Noticing the changes in her behavior her sisters try bullying her into confessing the source of her distraction.

Sent down a road she never expected to travel Graye fears she’ll come out on the losing end. Will Graye’s inability to ignore her feelings result in the loss of her best friend? Will she acquire peace as her life slightly changes course? Even if she doesn’t want to Graye will soon find out.
