Colt and Julia were having a secret "love affair." They met under the bridge by the river, hung out in the back seat of her car, told no one -- not best friends, not family. Julia was rich, Colt is poor. Julia is dead, Colt is alive. She died in a car accident, leaving Colt to wonder: did she love him? Why did she never break up with her "real" boyfriend? What would have happened if everyone had known they were together?

Colt is left to search for answers in the pages of Julia's journal, full of letters that she wrote to him, but never gave him. He relives their relationship, remembers her words and the way she felt against him, and cannot quite figure out how to let her go. But things keep on changing for the living and Colt has to decide how to go on with his life without Julia.
