Two years after the death of her parents, Zhara Baker is still haunted by the last words she said to her mother. To redeem herself, she tries to remain the happy, positive, good girl her mother always wanted her to be.
But at the end of her senior year, she feels like she’s stuck in a life she doesn’t belong in.
When the opportunity arises to take a trip overseas, she wants to go, hoping she’ll discover more about herself. But the only way her older brother, Loki, will let her make the trip is if she travels with Nico Everson, a family friend who’s headed to Europe for the summer.
All through high school Nico had a reputation for being a bad boy, and Zhara worries they won’t get along. But seeing no other way around it, she agrees to go with him. And what she ends up discovering is more than she ever expected.
