Sixteen-year-old August Bailey fantasizes about an apartment in the city, not a tiny house on an Iowa farm. During another fight about makeup and boys, August’s controlling mother slaps her. And August hops the next bus out of town.
She arrives in the city to discover that reality and fantasy don’t mix. When her money runs out, she is ‘saved’ by seventeen-year-old Reese, a kind boy with electric eyes and a gentleman’s heart. Reese lives on the streets. Each day is a struggle to make the right choice.
August falls in love with Reese, and knows her love can save him. She breaks down his emotional walls and he tells her his secrets – of abuse and the truth about his mother’s death.
As Reese’s feelings for August grow, so does the realization that keeping her could ruin her life too.
