She walks in with her music and out with his heart
Kaz Barrett should be saving for college. Instead, he saves his pay from the Sit 'n' Spin Laundromat to send his mother to an expensive sleep clinic in New York. She suffers from a rare neurological disorder, and both Kaz and his kid sister worry that one day, maybe tomorrow, their mother will fall asleep and never wake up.
But when pink-haired Zoey walks past the laundromat's window, Kaz's ordered life spins out of control. Smart, mysterious, and full of music, Zoey is unlike anyone Kaz has met . . . but there's another side to her that he can't quite figure out. When he goes looking for answers, he finds a whirlwind of lies, half-truths, and violence that could cost him everything he's worked for.
