Summary
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 small town New Jersey house her unaffectionate mother left to her when she ran off with a Long Island businessman. 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, and how to be the dad -- and man -- he wants so desperately to be. Then, one day, he meets a mysterious woman named Jubilee, with a unique condition
