Sixteen year old Jolene Brennan lives an idyllic existence in picturesque Abingdon, Virginia, in the Blue Ridge Mountains, with her history-obsessed parents and her one-year-older brother Jared, her best friend Kelli, and Jared’s friend Rufus, whom Jo has had a crush on for so long that she can’t remember when it started.
All that changes when Jared’s girlfriend Chelsea is murdered.
Everyone saw Chelsea leave with Jared after the AHS baseball game Saturday night, and the scratches on Jared’s face match the tissue under Chelsea’s fingernails. When word gets out that Chelsea was pregnant, Jared is charged with her murder.
With the police busy gathering evidence to prove their case, it’s up to Jo to prove Jared’s innocence, with a little help from Kelli and Rufus.
