Because of this disease, Maddy must remain her home, which has been remodeled to fit her needs, and only come into contact with people who have been sanitized. The only people she ever sees regularly are her overprotective mother and her nurse, Carla. She has rarely ever questioned her disease and in fact, has come to accept her life as it is. That is, until she sees Olly.
As soon as Maddy lays eyes on Olly she is sucked inside a whirlwind that will take her on the adventure of a lifetime and make her step out of her boundaries. Together, Maddy and Olly are willing to risk everything for love, even if it means losing everything.
