Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.
Alice, an eighteen year old girl, has just been left heartbroken. Bryce, the boy she loved, was forced to move away by his abusive and controlling father. In fear for her sanity, her parents ship her off to a boarding school in hopes to instill a sense of hope in their daughter that Bryce took with him.
At this new school, Alice, finds comfort in Maurice. Maurice is a strange girl with a weird sense of style who quickly adapts to Alice and helps her merge into the group Maurice calls friends. But there's one boy who Alice would like to avoid at first, one boy who reminds her of the love she lost.
Will Alice stick to the promise she made Bryce he left or will trouble, Kane and her new friends prove too tempting to avoid?
