Fifteen-year-old Andy Lockwood is special. Others notice the way he blurts out anything that comes into his mind, how he cannot foresee consequences, and that he's more child than teenager. But his mother sees a boy with a heart as open and wide as the ocean.
Laurel Lockwood lost her son once through neglect. She's spent the rest of her life determined to make up for her mistakes, and she's succeeded in becoming a committed -- if overprotective -- parent.
Still, she loosens her grip just enough to let Andy attend a local church social -- a decision she regrets when the church is consumed by fire.
But Andy survives... and remarkably, saves other children from the flames. Laurel watches as her son becomes the darling of their community, basking in the postive attention he's always craved.
But when the suspicion of arson is cast upon Andy, Laurel will risk everything to prove his innocence. Except she could never have known just how many secrets would surface in her desperate bid to clear his name…
