All her life, Lyla has been on the wrong side of the world. From the time she was four, every single man she'd ever known had betrayed and hurt her. She had seen things by the time she started her freshman year that would make a hardened soldier weep. She has no expectations to survive to graduation, much less for things to get better at all. But then she meets Hayden, a softmore who isn't afraid to beat the world, and might just end up being Lyla's. But can she open up her heart to Hayden, or is she too far gone for even him to save her?
