A life-changing moment:

"Has something ever taken you by such surprise that you felt like time stood still, and the universe held you in sweet suspense so you could savor the moment and remember the feeling for the rest of your life? That's how I felt right then."

It's 1991 in the small town of Leeville, Texas. High school graduation is finally within sight for Olivia Miller. Her friends know exactly what they're good at and what they want to do next, but Olivia's not so sure of herself. She's a shoe-in for the senior award "Most Likely to Never Figure Out What They Want To Do With Their Life".

Cameron is the hot new guy at school, and he's a fabulous distraction for Olivia as she stresses over what she should do with her life after high school.

"His smile made my heart flutter, and for a moment I couldn't think of what to say or do. He had adorable dimples, and his teeth were straight and white behind full, kissable lips."

She's college-bound, that's non-negotiable, but she's clueless about the where, how, and what of it all. She's dealing with a critical and controlling father with high expectations. Can she trust him to pay for college if he doesn't approve of her choice of major? Most of all, she just wants to get away from home!

With Cameron's help and some guidance from others, she starts to break free of her need to please her dad. She's determined to be her own person and make her own choices, but can she ever get her dad and his judgmental comments out of her head?

NOTE TO READERS: This is a Mature Young Adult / NEW ADULT novel. It is written in first person POV and set in 1991. While there is no graphic sex or explicit language, it has descriptive romance and other content that would be considered PG-13 (if it were a movie) or TV-14 (if it were a TV show).
