From the author of Before I Go comes an unconventional love story..One time a boy kissed me and I almost died.....And so begins the story of Jubilee Jenkins, a young woman with a rare and debilitating medical condition: she's allergic to other humans. After a humiliating near-death experience in high school, Jubilee has become a recluse, living the past nine years in the confines of the house her unaffectionate mother left to her when she ran off to remarry. But now, her mother is dead, and without her financial support, Jubilee is forced to leave home and face the world - and the people in it - that she's been hiding from...One of those people is Eric Keegan, a man who just moved into town for work. With a daughter from his failed marriage who is no longer speaking to him, and a brilliant, if psychologically troubled, adopted son, Eric is struggling to figure out how his life got so off-course. Then, one day, he meets a mysterious woman named Jubilee, with a unique condition.....An evocative and ultimately joyful exploration of the power and possibilities of the human heart...
