Kate Carter is an ordinary eighteen-year-old. Other than a somewhat obsessive fondness for iced tea and complete swearing-off of boys ever since a blind date when she was fifteen (don’t ask), she’s about as normal as they come. At least until she steps into art class. There, she’s surrounded by pencils, paper, paint and her stoic table partner, Silent Nathan. Which is fine with her—no guys, remember? When her new art teacher starts a series on how to use art in the everyday world, Kate starts getting excited. And it’s not about the electrical engineer career her dad has envisioned for her. When the “real-life” sketching leads to Kate accidentally sketching a man wanted for first-degree murder, and when her sketch shows up on the news, Kate becomes an instant celebrity. But just as she’s learning to enjoy her fame, the man she helped catch escapes from jail. Suddenly, Kate’s life is far from normal.
