It’s Nova’s final year of high school and everything is on track for an amazing year.
She’s going to ace all her studies and go on to be a doctor. She’s got a spot on the swim team. And she’s in love for the first time—with Leo, the captain of the swim team.
But things don’t turn out quite like Nova had planned. As her relationship with Leo intensifies, so does her obsession with him and her jealousy over his so-called friendship with another girl. The tighter she tries to hold on to him, the more he seems to pull away. The constant worry about the future of their relationship sends Nova spiraling into depression. Even she can’t believe how badly she’s handling things now. But could there be another reason for it, one she doesn’t even want to admit to herself?
