What will happen though when something positive happens to Rowan as Mike - the school quarterback asks her to the Prom . Will her family stand in the way of her happiness once again, especially when her younger sister spreads lies about Mike which end up getting the police involved. Will Rowan discover a guardian angel that will help her to escape the past she has been caged in , in order to move on with her future plans and what will happen when the truth about why and how her baby brother "really" died comes pouring out in the end?
