Jake Riley is dangerous.

Everyone has a different idea about Jake. Lainey's friends think he's her boyfriend. Lainey's mother thinks he's sad. Lainey's guidance counselor thinks he is a bad influence on her.

By the time Lainey learns the truth about Jake, she no longer has to wonder about one thing.

She knows he's dangerous.
