Seventeen-year-old Alexa Cross is desperate to get to Broadway, but when she receives a failing math grade, hopes of a scholarship disappear.
Now she'll need her father's help to achieve her dream. The only problem is he doesn't consider her choice of careers to be sensible, and after the pain her family has suffered, Alexa can't go against his wishes.
Trapped between a family she loves and her love of the stage, Alexa will have to find another way to achieve her dream or settle for what her father wants.
West Howell does his best to keep his head down and go unnoticed. It's easier to be cut off than to try to explain to people why he's so screwed up. After all, he can't afford to get into any more trouble.
When he's recruited to tutor the hot, prissy girl from math, he never expects to fall in love with her - or that she might be the one person who can relate to him.
Together, they may find a way to heal each other and get what they both desperately need, as long as Alexa's father doesn't decide the one thing worse than his daughter's love of the stage is her love for West.
