Scarlett and her friend Imogen show Noah around for the day and they invite him to hang out with them and go to the movies. Noah and Scarlett start to like each other and get to know each other better, they start to date and are irreparable.
Scarlett is a girl in the story who grew up with a brother, mom and dad. When she was young, her and her family had a HUGE house fire that effected Scarlett's memories. She couldn't remember anything before the age of about 5. Scarlett's friends know it is a sensitive topic to her, so they don't talk about it much. Noah on the other hand is very pushy and passive about it. He works really hard to get her to try and remember and talk about the memories and her life before the fire.
Noah is the new kid in school, his first two friends are Scarlett and Imogen. They show him around and introduce him to their friends. Noah is a different kid, he's not like Scarlett and her friends, he is very healthy, loves being outside and he and his family are very exclusive, the only person who really knows his family well is Scarlett. Noah is a somewhat secretive person, that makes the book more interesting.
