"If she'd waited less than two weeks, she'd be June who died in June. But I guess my sister didn't consider that"
Harper Scott's older sister has always been the perfect one - so when June takes her own life a week before her high school graduation, sixteen-year-old Harper is devastated. Everyone's sorry, but no one can explain why.
When her divorcing parents decide to split her sister's ashes into his-and-hers urns, Harper takes matters into her own hands. She decides to steal the ashes and drive cross-country with her best friend, Laney, to the one place June had always dreamed of going - California.
Meanwhile, Jake Tolan's a boy with a bad attitude, a classic-rock obsession and nothing in common with Harper's sister. But Jake had a connection with June, and when he insists on going to California with them, Harper's desperate enough to let him. With his alternately charming and infuriating demeanour, as well as his belief that music can help you through anything, Jake might just be exactly what Harper needs.
Except June wasn't the only one hiding something. Jake's keeping a secret that has the power to turn Harper's life upside down - again.
