Hallie has zero interest in four more years of teachers and term papers.After graduation and an unforgettable summer of parties and romance, everyone—including her boyfriend, Jaz—heads off to college. Hallie is no longer part of a couple or a crowd. Her family, in which she had to grow up fast, is more chaotic and scattered than ever. She tries to get a job, but discovers that a high school diploma will only take her so far. After a shattering heartbreak, she finally has to confront the reality of who she is and where she's going.This sensitive picture of a young woman coming to terms with hard truths about adulthood and growing up in the process is well populated with believable characters.
