After surviving being shot in the head, 17-year-old Jonah Sheppard's family moves him from California to Pennsylvania. Jonah hates it there. He's alone, bullied because of scars on his head, and can't remember most of his past. After meeting Lily Blackwell, however, he begins a search for answers as to who he was before he was shot, and it leads him to a realization too horrible to be true.
