Bridget has always caused mischief in the small Texas town. When her parents can't handle her anymore they ship her off to boarding school, where she acts out even more; especially when she meets Gabe. Three years later, when she's 16, a fire, gambling, and a drug deal all take place at the boarding school, leaving all clues pointing to her. The only thing is, she didn't do any of it, but no one believes her and she's sent back to her parents. Even they don't believe her, and enforce a strict set of rules for her. Bridget's older brother, Ryan, and his friend, Lucas, think she's not as bad as she makes everyone think, but is Lucas maybe a little biased because of her sparkling green eyes? As Bridget struggles through the school with the people who used to call her friends in the town that used to be home, she realizes she's sick of being the girl that everyone talks about. But then Gabe comes looking for her. How will Lucas and Ryan react? Will Bridget go back to her old ways? Will she ruin the last chance she has with her parents by choosing Gabe, or will she stick to her new self and make Gabe leave?
