Since the time she was a little girl, eighteen-year-old Finley "Finn" Hemmings has always lived her life according to a plan, focused and driven with no time for the average young adult's carefree experiences. On the night of her high school graduation, things take a dramatic turn when she discovers that her mother has been keeping a secret from her-a secret that causes Finn to do something she had never done before-veer off her plan. In the middle of the night, Finn packs her bags and travels by bus to Graceville, SC seeking the truth. In Graceville, Finn has experiences that change her life forever; a summer of love, forgiveness and revelations. She learns to take chances, to take the plunge and to dive right in to what life has to offer.
