Jade Fulton and Ethan Garrett are opposites in every sense of the word. Ethan is an all-American poster boy--a star athlete dating the most popular girl in school and a devout Christian. Jade keeps mostly to herself. She abhors joining "things," hates everyone at their high school except her best friend, Gia, and considers herself agnostic. When Ethan and Jade find themselves locked in an aerobics room overnight, their confinement forces them to push past the labels they've given each other. Jock. Loner. Jesus freak. Skeptic. Golden boy. Intellectual. Amid hours of arguing, philosophizing, and silly game playing, Ethan and Jade learn there's a lot more to the other person than meets the eye. After that night, life returns to normal and each goes back to their regular lives. Still, neither one can shake the unexpected bond they formed and they can't help but question what they've been taught to believe, who they want to be, and where their hearts truly lie.
