He's the bad influence they're always warning us about.
And I'm the girl who should know better.
Hunter Reed is off limits. Not only because he's a walking grenade who talks with his fists but because he doesn't worship the right God.
We grew up adjacent, not together. Our houses are divided by a creek, but our lives are divided by our prejudices, our pain, and a religion I don't have the courage to leave. But lately I find myself unable to look away from him. He's seeping in, becoming the best and worst parts of this small-town life. And I have no idea what to do with these feelings growing inside me.
Whatever this is between us, it's going to destroy us both...
Annie Wilson is a Jehovah's Witness, a good girl, and deeply unhappy. Everyone can see that. She's just too busy knocking on people's doors to realise it. But there's a shift in her lately.

I don't know why I play along. Maybe to stop her from doing something she'll regret. But where's the line? Because there's no coming back from the place we're headed.
Annie can pray all she wants, but no God of hers can save us from each other...
