Eighteen year old Ella just can’t get her license. The DMV Driver’s Manual is boring, her teachers are crotchety sticklers, and her mother is grudgingly willing to drive her everywhere she wants. Why bother? But a blown red light lands her in the hands of a new teacher, Edmond Kilner, a dark-eyed driving instructor as handsome as he is secretive. Suddenly, getting her license has become a matter of life and death as Edmond’s past threatens to snuff out Ella’s future forever.
