For Jessie Kasper, inner turmoil hides behind the face of an overachiever ...
From the outside looking in, Jessie is a normal nineteen-year-old high school senior. Athletic, likeable, and seemingly well rounded, he’s every parent’s dream. However, Jessie is suffering from an unfathomable pain ... the pain of loss.
Sickness tears him apart from the inside out - but the illness is not his own.
After cancer stole two of the most influential people in his life, Jessie is left to cope with his emotions. He struggles to make sense of his life's cruelty, and is obsessed with the idea that he too will someday become ill and fall victim to the merciless disease.
The first step to getting help is admitting there’s a problem ...
As his emotional state begins to spiral, Jessie finally seeks psychiatric help. That's where he meets Kacey Monroe. She’s the most beautiful woman Jessie has ever laid eyes on, and she also knows the pain of loss. While they bond over their life experiences and mutual attraction, Jessie finds comfort in the normalcy of having a high school girlfriend.
Jessie's support system is not only shaken - it's completely destructed as a revolting secret is exposed leaving his vulnerable psyche completely eviscerated.
A split second decision completely alters Jessie's life course in a way he can't possibly comprehend. Hand in hand, he and Kacey are left to face the aftermath ... or run.

Praise for the Book
"This book blew my mind. I actually got through it in one sitting. I couldn't put it down. I had to know what was going because I was clueless. That ending was OMG!! I mean my jaw dropped last night and I still haven't picked it up." ~ Kimberly Vanderbloom
"From the very first page of the book, the reader is immersed into the chaotic world of Jessie Kasper. Fair warning, you will need a ton of tissues if you think you can handle reading this book. I cried my eyeballs out!" ~ Jessica Ozment
"First of all, anytime I'm reading a book and I feel the urge to stop and highlight a line or mark a page because it moves me so much, I know I'm going to fall in love. I've read a few of Bradon Nave's books, but this one was my favorite. I couldn't put it down and I felt so touched by the characters and invested in their stories." ~ carissa backherms
"Even though Bradon Nave writes about dark and sad events this story is fast-paced and is really hard to put down. The ending left me speechless, I didn't see it coming at all. Bradon Nave is an author who everyone should be watching. I personally can’t wait for the next book to come out, so I can find out how the story will continue." ~ Anniek Snowroses
"This author has it all in this book! Love, tragedy, friendship, a story of love and loss, I recommend you to buy this book! I truly did not expect what happened to Jessie and his girlfriend, this book of heart ache, loss, and tragedy comes together! Truly amazing writing went into this! Brandon Nave is a author to stalk! Very brilliant writing!" ~ jodilmooreetheridge
