Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Susan is the new girl--she's sharp and driven, and strives to meet her parents' expectations of excellence. Malcolm is the bad boy--he started raising hell at age fifteen, after his mom died of cancer, and has had a reputation ever since. Susan's parents are on the verge of divorce. Malcolm's dad is a known adulterer. Susan hasn't told anyone, but she wants to be an artist. Malcolm doesn't know what he wants--until he meets her. Love is messy and families are messier, but in spite of their burdens, Susan and Malcolm fall for each other. The ways they drift apart and come back together are testaments to family, culture, and being true to who you are.

Sixteen-year-old Susan is the new girl in her Canadian high school, striving to meet her parents' academic expectations, missing the friends she left behind in Saudi Arabia, dreaming of pursuing her passion for art, and secretly meeting with troublemaker Malcolm.
