Jane and her little sister have been in and out of foster care for the past four years. After being apart from her for over a year this time, the judge has sent them to live with their Mother in Winchester, a small town southeast of Cincinnati, Ohio. Jane refuses to believe that her Mother has quit using Heroin and Jane's only concern with life is to make sure her four year old sister Lizzie is cared for. Jane is a loner. She is very reserved with her feelings and keeps to herself. She will t let herself become friends with anyone until a new girl from Alabama decides Jane needs a friend whether she wants one or t. And Jane most certainly does t believe in the possibility of love until Landon Whitman (the county's resident rich boy) decides she needs to be loved. Somehow Jane ends up with a best friend and a boyfriend after professing she would never have either one. Jane's first summer in this country town turns out to be the best one of her life until she learns that Landon has a devastating secret. Now Jane struggles with the conflict of loving Landon and despising what he does.
