Struggling with school and having a crush on a boy that's spoken for become the least of Michele's worries when she meets Elliot in a rather unconventional way - falling over a wall while snooping in Elliot's private school's backyard. Michele finds herself peering into the bluest and most mysterious eyes she's ever seen, and then falling again, but this time her fall is emotional rather than physical. It's in the town of Willow's Creek where Elliot and Michele's story blossoms from several encounters leading way to a whirlwind of unexpected events. Elliot's past is intriguing and adventurous and sometimes dark, which has Michele's appeal for the boy at the highest peak.
