Fifteen-year-old Vikki loves her boyfriend, Linc. But when Jona moves to town, things get complicated. Jona is beautiful. Sensitive. Funny. At first, Vikki finds it thrilling to spend time with two delicious boys. But when Linc and Jona seem to be enjoying each other’s company just a little too much, Vikki struggles to keep her feelings of jealousy in check.

When Jona is implicated in a theft, Vikki doesn’t jump to his rescue, though she could sort things out by sharing what she knows. Lies of omission are covered up by lies of a more insidious kind, and the situation quickly spirals out of control.
