At seventeen, James Fitzpatrick is already in serious trouble—not that he would admit it. He drinks to cope with his dissociative disorder, can’t remember half his screwed-up childhood, and is experimenting with drugs his best friend, Caleb, would kill him for…if he found out.

If it wasn’t for Caleb, James would have given up a long time ago. Caleb rides James about school, makes him listen to his shrink, and most importantly, Caleb always makes sure James stays on this side of the grave. But when Cassie moves into the neighborhood, the summer of senior year, Caleb’s focus shifts to her. And as Caleb’s relationship with Cassie progresses, James fears he might lose his friend for good. To make matters worse, something about Cassie pulls at James’ heart. As his memories begin to surface, he finds he’s confiding in Cassie instead of Caleb.

Now, for the first time, James is falling in love—with the one girl he can’t have and lying to Caleb, the one person he can’t live without. But Cassie can cause as much stress as she cures and being disloyal to Caleb eats away at James’ soul. When James’ worlds collide, he must decide on his own where his loyalties lie before he loses everything.
