Now, fours years later, and no better off than she was at sixteen, Sammy -- the boy that got away-- returns only to find River's life bleaker than ever. He ran away from her when she needed him the most, but unanswered questions plagued him and after seeing her again, the feelings that he pushed into the deep recesses of his heart have reignited into a flame he is certain he can not ignore. When the sparks between Sammy and River finally ignite, it will leave explosive consequences for everyone.
