When eighteen-year-old Mia Cox finds out she’s not a match to donate a kidney to save her younger sister’s life, she jumps on a plane to New York, convinced she can talk their estranged birth mother into donating hers instead.
After an embarrassing conversation with the cute boy sitting next to her for the flight, she realizes he’s the one and only Jaxton Scott, the troubled lead singer of a famous rock band she hates—and he’s running away from his rock star life. As the hours pass and they get to know each other, she finds herself opening up to him like she never has to anyone, even though he's a total stranger. Which is fine, since she'll never see him again.
But when her trip to New York doesn’t go as planned, and a phone call from her sister changes everything she had planned, Mia knows she must put her trust in fate and her new friend, even though she’s lost all reason to hope.
