Dani's life will never be the same again.
After a terrorist attack kills Dani's aunt and unborn cousin, life in Argentina-private school, a boyfriend, a loving family-crumbles quickly. In order to escape a country that is sinking under their feet, Dani and her family move to the United States. It's supposed to be a fresh start, but when you're living in a cramped apartment and going to high school where all the classes are in another language-and not everyone is friendly-life in American is not all it's cracked up to be. Dani misses her old friends, her life, Before.
But then Dani meets.
