At fourteen-years old, Harper Whitmore entered high school an unassuming five feet tall. What she lacked in stature she more than made up for with her fast talk, quick wit and her ability to hold her own. Convinced she was prepared to take on the world (or rather her small island of it); her plan was thrown after colliding into senior Scott Pierce just before second period. Popular, attractive, captain of the varsity basketball team, and well versed in life, Scott maneuvers himself into Harper’s life with confidence. She is both intimidated and fascinated by her new boyfriend, but yet keenly aware of how others see her relationship. By the time she is a sophomore she learns to abandon her concern for others and personifies herself by Scott.
As Harper soon learns, her unconventional romance with Scott will lead to a life of self-consumption and a desire to please Scott at the expense of all others, resulting in a painful experience that threatens to tear them both apart.
