Pampered and cultured Katie Welch has had the same friends her entire life, but lately she doesn’t fit in anymore. Then her mother drags her to a remote farm town where the local kids are friendly, but they don’t know the real her. Even the grownups in her life seem to have lost their way. In the throes of growing up and growing apart, Katie discovers the most unusual boy swimming in her lake and for the first time in memory, she connects. John is refreshingly old-fashioned and wise in ways Katie has never encountered before, but it’s clear he’s hiding something. Katie is just so happy to have someone she can relate to, she’s willing to defy her mother and ignore the warning signs - until it's too late.
