The year is 1974. Kyle Sands is a high school senior, looking for something to fill the emptiness in his life. A child of a divorced couple, he has only himself and his music to rely on.
Valerie Willard is a ninth-grade English teacher caged in an abusive, loveless marriage, looking for an escape.
When Kyle sees her for the first time, he knows she is what he has been looking for all his life.
When Valerie hears Kyle play his music, she knows her life will never be the same. But as she looks over her four lists, all the pros are under Kyle's name, but there are also two cons, and they could destroy her.
The relationship is so wrong, so dangerous. Obstacles are everywhere, and no one thinks it's right, including one person whose interference threatens their very lives.
