Virginia “V” Dunn is alone when a hit-and-run accident leaves her dog, Lucky, bleeding and helpless. Suddenly, the monotony of her suburban life dissolves: Lucky is in a cast, her best friend is avoiding her, her mother’s drinking is getting worse, and her father is sick with a mysterious illness. Although V is surrounded by family, she is the loneliest girl in town.
In her search for answers to life’s difficult questions—about death, friendship, family and betrayal—V is floundering. Until she meets the captivating Jane.
But her new love also leads to confusion, until V realizes the only way forward is to dive in, even if it means breaking every rule.

“It’s a beautiful thing when a lover takes your hand, a thrill when he parts your fingers with his own and pulls you close. And what a dream come true when she finally kisses you. How is it that your lips meet before you’ve even had time to greet? It’s because he knows what to do, all over you. Think of that first sweet breath, before your mouths actually find each other, how it makes you spin . . . "
