Seventeen-year-old Mae is convinced that the consequences of her poor decisions
have caused the untimely deaths of her dad, sister Laura, and grandma who all
die within a year, no matter how ludicrous her thoughts seem to those she
loves. The solution? Run away so no one else she cares for gets hurt (even if
she has to keep a GPS tracker on her phone at all times).
Desperate to earn her diploma and salvage something of her life, she transfers
schools when people get too close. After switching to Woodson Prep with only
two months to go until graduation, Mae keeps her goals in sight. But when she
meets Ty, the "perfect boy" with his own secrets and a relentless
interest in Mae, she must decide if she can stop running from the past and
still protect those she loves.
