He disappeared when she needed him the most...
Cassie's life is as typical as any other teen in Laramie. High school, teenage drama, an annoying big sister, and her "bff" Joe, all remain her everyday companions. Yep, typical and predictable suit Cassie just fine. With her future wide open on the horizon, everything seems rather normal....or at least it was until tragedy blew Cassie's life into a thousand little pieces.
After a devastating loss, Cassie is shipped off to live with her aunt, who's controlling manner is too much for Cassie to bear. When Cassie seeks out Joe to find some consolation in her best friend, she's shocked to find out he's vanished without a trace.
After the revelation of Joe's disappearance, her world is rocked yet once again with her aunt's announcement that she's arranged for Cassie to be married. Married?? More confused than ever, she's forced to wonder: what's really going on, why is she being forced to marry and, most of all, what happened to her best friend Joe?
Will Cassie find Joe in time to help rescue her from her awful circumstances or will she end up in a marriage she never wanted?
