Emily Bell believes in destiny. To her, being forced to sing a solo in the church choir - despite her average voice - is fate: because it's while she's singing that she first sees Sam. At first sight, they are connected.
Sam Border wishes he could escape, but there's nowhere for him to run. He and his little brother, Riddle, have spent their entire lives constantly uprooted by their unstable father. As Sam and Riddle are welcomed into the Bells' lives, they witness the warmth and protection of a family for the first time. But when tragedy strikes, they're left fighting for survival in the desolate wilderness - and wondering if they'll ever find a place where they can belong.

Emily Bell has it all-or so she thinks.
She's in love with a boy named Sam, and this summer is destined to be the best they've ever known. No one suspects that Sam's violent father - who blames the Bell family for his incarceration - is planning a jailbreak. Meanwhile, Sam and Emily's idyllic romance is under fire from a charismatic new girl in town, and Emily begins to question the loyalty of the person she thought she could trust most.
But when true danger comes knocking, her only hope for survival may be from the most unexpected place.
