And there it was again, the troubling notion that I barely knew the people I loved.
Daddy’s girl Rebecca Muir has long known exactly what she wants to do after high school: attend the prestigious architecture program at Columbia University, 3000 miles away from her home. But as the end of school nears, things are no longer so clear cut-she’s just fallen in love with the perfect guy, Jackson; her dad has gotten a new job in New York, so her whole family is following her to the east coast; and she’s having trouble ignoring her premonition that something terrible is coming.
And it soon becomes clear why: shortly after the move, her father reveals that he’s leaving them, and Rebecca is left to pick up the pieces of her former life. When everything can change in an instant, Reb doesn’t know what path to follow or whom to trust–and she must begin to search for what she really wants to do with her life.
Justina Chen, the acclaimed author of North of Beautiful, has created a moving and powerful story about the struggle that comes from betrayal, the uncertainty of life after high school, and the joy that ultimately comes from discovering what’s truly in your heart.
