Seventeen-year-old Kansas is afraid of life. Of speaking, of her classmates. At the elitest Kensington High she is the perfect victim. When the daily attacks reach an unbearable level, she wants to plunge to death.
But at the old railway bridge she meets River. River with the river-blue eyes and the look of a fallen angel. River, who loves beautiful words as much as she does. He persuades/suggest her a deal/his plan: she should come along with him (a trip) for one summer, then they jump together - if she still wants to.
She agrees and soon they are inseparable. But while Kansas emotional and physical hurts are healing, Rivers gets badly off (from high to worse). Soon, Kansas wonders who really needs to be rescued - and what dark secret he hides from her ...
River and Kansas, a love like a wire walking without a leash. Only one step away from death. Intensive. Dangerous. Romantic.
