pb mock upGideon Stryker hates high school and everything that comes with it. As a dancer at a school filled with students whose favorite past time is to make his life as miserable as possible, his plan for senior year is simple: lay low, graduate, and get the hell out

Elliott Oakley wasn’t looking for friends, a relationship, or anything in between after his normal life went from tolerable to unbearable and he made the necessary choice to move from Iowa to North Carolina.

But this is life. And plans change.

They were best friends first but Gideon and Elliott soon form a connection to power to deny. They fall hard for each, creating chaos and ignoring judgment wherever they go.

Suddenly, high school seems manageable, life seems bearable, and the plans they were so set on following get tossed out the window. They make a new plan. One that ends with them together.

But their plan gets a giant wedge tossed into it the moment Elliott’s past makes the journey for Iowa all the way to North Carolina, creating more chaos than they ever thought possible.
