Sixteen-year-old Melissa has watched her dad mentally and physically abuse her mother for years. She cries herself to sleep almost every night because of the fighting and lives in fear of what might happen next in a house that has never known joy, peace or love. When the abuse turns from her mother and toward Melissa, she flees in the middle of the night, vowing to die before she would ever go back.

With a plan in mind and a little determination, she sets forth to leave a world that has shown her nothing but grief. The day she decides to activate her plan, two friends invite her to a teen event sponsored by a local church. Once there, she discovers the love of God and learns there are always options--but Melissa has made a decision that could change everything.
