Meg McPhereson is a girl who just wants to escape school, her parents, her home-town. Her life! But one crazy night that involves her, a dare and a forbidden railroad track changes everything. She is arrested and as punishment must endure one whole week of partnering with a cop during his night shift, during spring break. But that one week changes almost everything about her as she falls in love with John After, the cop that put her in her situation.
Meg's character is the basic rebellious teenager, but slightly different. Her past has changed her outlook in her life and future. And John is the goody two shoes, who has his laces untied. Meg and John begin to bond and their two extreme personnalitites (badass and saint) merge as they fall in love. Though the plot seems like a total cliche the character development makes up for it. Meg jus isn't a MOODY TEEN (hihi) she has reasons and John digs up each of those reasons as they fall in love and Meg pushes every single one of his buttons. But the problem in their romance is that once high school is over Meg is ready to spread her wings and fly away to college land but John's plans consist of many dougnuts, and staying where he is.
