Why does growing up have to be so difficult?
Daly English is having a harder time than most. Her future as an artist is unclear, her relationship with her mother is damaged beyond repair, and--to top it all off--her long-term boyfriend is having an affair. When Daly befriends two unlikely individuals--first a pregnant teen, and then a light-hearted charmer from India--her cynicism begins to melt away.
Meghann provides insight into Daly's life and an endless stream of good advice, comforting Daly despite her own less fortunate position.
Kashi proves he cares too much about Daly to let her fade into the background of her own life. After a series of false starts, their quirky romance carries them to India, where Daly must win the approval of Kashi's family in order to seal their "forever."
Will these friendships be enough to turn around Daly's directionless life? Will she move past the hurt and learn to trust again? Or will her mother, once again, ruin everything she's worked so hard to achieve?
