Elijah hasn’t had the best luck in life. When his best friend committed suicide right before the end of their senior year of high school, he went to Florida in search of a fresh start. When his girlfriend betrayed him a year later, it seemed as though the universe was conspiring against him to make his life as miserable as possible. Until he met Zoe. In a matter of a few hours, she turned his world upside-down and gave him back his passion for life. When he starts his first teaching job out of college the next morning and sees her sitting in his class as one of his high school students, will he retreat back into himself like he’s become accustomed to doing for so long? Or will he risk everything for the girl who reminded him that life is worth living to its fullest?
