Iliana Passing--wife, mother, and former acclaimed journalist--gave up her career to start a family. Almost fifteen years later, despite how much she loves her husband and kids, she can't help wondering how she ended up with a life spent carpooling and running errands.
Ready to get back into the journalism game, Iliana searches for an exciting lead. When she discovers that Jeff Downs, the heartthrob star of an old TV show and her girlhood crush, now owns a nearby textile company, she thinks she's found her story: teen celebrity and its aftermath. But as Iliana gets to know Jeff, the two grow closer than she ever could've imagined. Now that her teenage dream has walked into her present-day reality, how far will she go to entertain an old fantasy?
