Geeky writing prodigy Sydney Camden has always dreamed about finding true love. When she ends up dating Josh Simpson, king of her Catholic high school, it seems too good to be true. And it is: It ends in rape—and the accidental death of the drunken rapist.
As Sydney begins spiraling into the safe escape of her story-worlds, along comes Calvin. He’s an annoyingly handsome British guy who just wants to find a smidge of happiness after losing his Mum to cancer and moving to Seattle to live with his relatives, the Simpsons. He’s not expecting to fall for some American girl at first sight, certainly not at his newly dead cousin Josh’s funeral.
Sydney claims she wants nothing to do with this relative of Josh’s. But as Calvin becomes entangled in her tragic story, she begins to see that the Divine Author is writing her a much different love story than she expected.
