Even for a normal girl, senior year of high school sucks; but for a girl who has mental and emotional issues the stress is just torture. That’s what it’s like for Georgia, who was orphaned at a young age and tortured beyond belief. She finally obtains a peace in her life, but then finds herself in the middle of a love triangle between a cowboy (who’s her best friend) and the popular quarterback.

Prom and graduation are just around the corner. Georgia must decide who she wants to pursue a relationship with but cannot handle the pressure. Senior year gets a little chaotic, and just when Georgia thinks she has found a place safe enough to grow emotionally, things turn to disaster. This year turns out to be more than anyone anticipated and she thinks everything is ok, but is it?
