For most, the loss of a mother is a reason to slow down. For Elliot Mitchell, it was a reason to stop.
Elliot's perfectly content coasting on autopilot – her only motivation is escaping the town narrating her past. Never mind her absent father and continual nightmares, or that she used to be a track prodigy. A few more months, and she'd be transferring to university. Her past would finally be where it belonged: behind her.
But Elliot wasn’t counting on meeting Ben Harrison.
Ben is different – the fact he has cerebral palsy is just the start. When the two keep getting pushed together, Elliot finds she is thrown from her comfort zone and into a place both frightening and stirring. Eventually, she begins to remember everything she wants to forget.
Will Elliot be able to face her past and move forward? Or will she remain immobile forever?
