Bloom’s life has been a series of struggles. After her mother’s suicide, when she was just a little girl, she spends her entire life with a father who is ashamed of her looks and hates her. At sixteen she finds out her looks are due to PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome), and she might never have a child of her own.
When tragedy hits and her father is sent to jail, she’s left living with a brother she had no clue existed. And here she is, at twenty, about to start college, with no friends, a life of insecurities, and the prospect of being sterile.
One day, she finds herself literally falling in the arms of a hot guy. Owen is his name. Oh, she remembers seeing him at the events her father hosted at their house. But she was never allowed to attend. Her appearance was too repulsive. But Owen said hello to her anyway.
Despite how sweet he is, Bloom has more important things to worry about, like starting college, finishing her injection treatment, and hopefully finding some friends. Until, that first day of college, she sees Owen standing off in the distance with another girl.
She never wanted a boyfriend.
Will she be brave and try?
