Scott Lambert is the kind of guy every girl dreams of dating: good looking, popular, and fabulously rich. But Scott is tormented by a family secret he doesn't want anyone to discover especially not Natalie Ainsworth, the pretty high-school junior he is just getting to know. Scott is convinced a great girl like Natalie could never understand what it's like to have an alcoholic mother who's in and out of rehab-or to be faced with the devastating prospect of having her come home again.
Natalie Lambert knows she's falling hard for Scott Lambert, but she worries that his elusive personality will keep her from ever getting close. Then the Lambert family invites her to come along on a weekend getaway to upscale Lake Oakwood, and Natalie thinks she's found her big opportunity. Will she finally learn the truth about Scott and the mysterious mother he refuses to discuss?
Will there always be a barrier between them?
