After finding his girlfriend cheating on him, Ezra was leaving a party when he was struck by another driver. the accident ruined his tennis career and ultimately left him having to start over.

Ezra gets comfortable with his new life; however, just as he thinks he has everything figured out, tragedy strikes again. Cassidy breaks up with him right before prom and he is forced to rethink his life.
My first reaction to the book was disappointment. I wanted a happy ending and the ending was everything but happy.
