While on a school trip to the Poconos Mountains (in the middle of a storm) high school seniors, Zyla Matthews and Kai Johnson, run away together leaving their friends and family confused. As far as everyone knows, Zyla and Kai have been broken up for months. And honestly? Their break up hadnt surprised anyone. Zyla and Kai met while working together at an amusement park the previous summer, and they couldnt have been more different. Zyla was a cynic about love. Shed witnessed the dissolution of her parents marriage early in life, and it left an indelible impression. Her only aim was graduating and going to fashion school abroad. Until she met Kai. Kai was a serial monogamist and a hopeless romantic. Hed put a temporary pause on his dating life before senior year to focus on school and getting into his dream HBCU. Until he met Zyla.
