Callum Tate and Harper Bailey have been forced out of the foster care system by the "eighteen disease", with no where to go, they both turn to their social workers for help. While sitting in the waiting room hoping for a miracle they start to notice each other.
"I was sitting next to one of the most beautiful girls I'd ever seen in my entire life. She was so intriguing, I could actually feel the sweat dripping down the back of my neck at the effort it was taking to keep from staring at her." (Squeeee don't you just love him already)
"Oh my God, I think I just melted a little bit into the floor. The guy I'd been sitting next to that entire time was bona fide swoon worthy".

Harper is new to all of this, in fact this is her first day being homeless and has no idea what to do or where to go. After, they were both placed on a waiting list for a home and sent on their way with only $100.00 from the state, they decide to help each other out.
“One day, you and I are gonna’ wake up and be alright. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow but one day. One day. I promise you.” - Callum Tate
