This masked character taps you on the shoulder for a dance...
Once upon a time better known as now...Gabriel Pritz reigns as king of his high school. Easy grades, perfect baseball season, a pretty date for prom he's coasting into a golden future. Until his parents demand he cook dinner once a week.
Caught between kitchen fires and ballpark withdrawal, Gabe is thrown into Tam Swann's orbit. Hostile, friendless, and stubborn, she's exactly the sort of person he'd prefer to avoid. Tam's sphere of influence expands beyond Gabe's sad domestic skills, rapidly invading everything from his favorite game to parts of his soul he didn't know existed.
It's uncomfortable, it's hard work, it's...making him a better man. And that's just what she does to people she doesn't like. The better he gets to know her, the more he has to face the truth: this sharp, heart-breaking outcast is worth fighting for.
How many families, fairy tales, and felons will he go through to ride to the rescue of the bravest person he's ever met?
