Kayla Parker is from the wrong side of town. Constantly made fun of, she dreams of a day when she is accepted like everyone else. Secretly, she believes that day will never come. Mitch Riley is the new guy in town, a preacher's kid who causes quite the uproar when he dethrones the star athlete, Devon Taylor. Much to Kayla's surprise, Mitch shows an interest in her. He looks past the hand-me-down clothes and her weight problem and sees her heart. But Devon Taylor is out for revenge. After prom, he ruthlessly rapes Kayla leaving her feeling hopeless and worthless. One night, she decides to take her own life. But before she does, she writes Devon a letter. Her last words to her attacker... "It's your fault I'm dead..." Now Mitch must make a decision--hate the one who took away his heart, or live up to the forgiveness his Christian beliefs demand.
