She meets tall dark and dangerous guy called Slade. He used to go to the same school she did but got kicked out.
Slade hangs out with the band and Emo people. She attends a few of the concerts, but something isn't right.
Hope also has the attention from a classmate who is the Major's son.
A little bit of a love triangle ensues but Hope can't say no to bad boy Slade. That is until she discovers his secrets.
A like Slade for the most part but I felt like he didn't fight hard enough for Hope. Hope is seventeen but acts much older. Having many responsibilities. I liked her relationship with her dad and best friend Karsen.
