Eighteen-year-old Anna has lived her whole life in shame, losing herself in books to cope with crippling panic attacks triggered by her abusive parents. Forced to commit herself to a psychiatric hospital, she can’t imagine a future that’s anything but bleak—until she meets Caleb, a gifted, 19-year-old artist who insists he’s an angel. He swears that his mission is to help Anna break free from her parents’ control and fulfill a destiny that she can only dream about. The hospital psychiatrist, however, is convinced that Caleb is delusional and suffers from catatonic stupors. Anna tries to resist falling for a boy who everyone thinks is crazy, but when she sees his stunning portraits of her and the way he puts himself at risk to keep her safe, she can’t help but surrender herself to him in every way.
Consumed by a fantasy of what could be, the two set out to build a perfect life together. But just when it seems they’ve created heaven on earth, Caleb’s past emerges in full force, threatening to destroy their tiny, blissful world. Anna must find the strength to survive what happens next and decide once and for all: is Caleb really an angel?
