All she wants is a place to call home...
and to be able to dance again.

The summer before her junior year of high school Amanda has lost her joy in life. After not making the dance team, she's engulfed in self loathing and bad decisions. One hot afternoon, during a bad drug trip, an old friend, Jered, rescues her. His nonjudgmental, blue eyes remind her of happier times, easier times, before her father left and her mother spiraled into a world of depression.

When Jered takes her to his grandmother Mae's farm, with her kitchen smelling of cinnamon and apples, Amanda wonders if she's fallen into a bit of heaven. A peaceful feeling surrounds her, but she doesn't feel worthy of love. Amanda longs to show her talented, generous side, but knows it will be a challenge with a high school full of drama and equally confused friends. Making the right decisions is never easy. Yet what she discovers in the picturesque setting of the farm will change everything for her, and for countless others.

A poignant tale of dreams, change, giving back, and strength
