Riley is just an average teenage girl entering high school and hoping to be popular. All of her dreams seem to come to fruition until a sexual assault leaves her banished and bullied. Teetering on the edge of an inappropriate relationship with her stepfather, Riley is uprooted from her home and her step-dad, the only friend she has, until an unlikely math tutor fills that role for her. A secret friendship blossoms into something more, and Riley believes she's found the family she always wanted, until a tragic shooting and deadly car accident, leave her alone in the darkness of depression, yet again. Responding to little more than the will to survive, Riley embarks on a journey of self-discovery, trying to forge a life out from under the shadow of her tragic past, which is not easy, for the past has a way of resurfacing when she least expects it.
