Emma is a seventeen year old girl leading a difficult life. Her mother died in a car crash when she was little and her father was left paralysed and brain damaged. Emma has to take care of him on weekends and doesn’t have much time for an ordinary teenage life.
Fortunately she has something that does brighten up her days: literature. Books, her blog and her new channel on Booktube are her refuge and while all the other girls her age have social lives, Emma prefers to spend hours in the library reading books.
Everything changes when Eric, a new boy in town, comes into her life. Eric is mind-numbingly handsome but he also has a lot of secrets and a dark past that means he has to do community service at the residence where Emma’s father lives.
Can Eric shake Emma out of her bubble? Why is Eric so cruel to her, why does her hurt her so? What dark secrets is he hiding?
