Description

Matt Bruckner, a brilliant violinist, is left paraplegic after a tragic car accident that also claimed the life of his sister. When sixteen-year-old Sammie Franklin visits him, she just wants to run away from his pain and the unfairness of it all. But somehow she can't.

By staying can she help Matt find a reason to live? As their difficult friendship develops, Sammie must come to terms with another pain - the recent death of her father.
