One day. Just one day. Amber's life is about to be turned upside down, and all she needs is one perfect day. Because tomorrow? Tomorrow she has to fly across the country to live with parents she's never known. Amber was switched at birth, but the mistake was only recently discovered, and the courts have decided that Amber will split each year between her family in Oregon and her birth parents in Texas. At sixteen, it's a hard reality for Amber to face.
So she escapes to the beach, where she meets a mysterious boy. Cade is dark and intense--and their chemistry is undeniable. As the two spend the day together, Amber discovers that Cade is also looking for escape. A very different escape--for a very different reason.
