Unsure of who he is or where he's going, Carter is only sure of one thing; his past is going to stay in the past. But when he gets pulled into the popular crowd at Mason County High School, he's forced to choose: tell the truth about who he is or lie.
And it seems to be working. His parents wanted to get him that crappy apartment because they're never home. He crashed his car so he doesn't have one. His weekends are filled because he has to spend time with his parents.
But when Carter is forced to open up to an outsider because of an English assignment, everything changes. There is something he sees in her, an undeniable connection. A need to discover what lies behind those sad eyes. But will Carter lower his defenses in order to get past hers? Will he let her in, or will he choose to stay broken?
