Summary
Katie, the narrator, has relocated to Missouri with her distant, occasionally abusive father, and she feels very much alone: her beloved mother is dead; her new school is unaccepting of her; and her only friends fall far short of being ideal companions.

As their relationship unfolds, so too does Katie's awareness of the pain and intensity first love can bring
