Her puppy-love relationship with classmate Gabe Kelsey quickly blossoms. But her carefree days in Catholic school darken with the arrival of Father John OConner, a predatory priest with a hidden past. Life becomes even more tangled when Kate falls hard for Gabes darkly handsome older brother, Michael. The Kelsey boys couldnt be more different: one is shy and self-effacing- the other is tall, athletic, and confident.As the brothers battle for Kates affections, how will she choose without tearing their family apart? When she silently witnesses a frightening scene between Gabe and Fr. OConner, Kate is unaware that she is OConners intended next victim.With her mother distracted by the strain of providing for her daughter, and a grandmother uncannily tuned in to her feelings, Kate struggles to navigate the unwanted attention from older boys and men, while trying to sort through the questionable counsel of her too-worldly best friend, Anita. Comical adventures lend relief to Kates dark struggles, especially when friends share their refreshingly naive observations about growing up. The tragic death of a classmate brings the group face-to-face with mortality, shattering their facade of invincibility.
