Dill is a misfit in his small, religious Tennessee town
And Lydia is like no one else fast-talking, creative and fiercely protective
Dill fears his heart will break when she escapes to a better life elsewhere
His dad is in prison for a shocking crime, and his mom is struggling to make ends meet
The only things getting Dill through senior year are his guitar and his fellow outcasts, Travis and Lydia
Travis is an oddball who finds comfort from his violent home life in an epic fantasy book series
What Dill needs now is some bravery to tell Lydia how he feels, to go somewhere with his music and to face the hardest test of all when tragedy strikes.
