Thrust into the California lifestyle, with its indulgence and seductions, Christy Miller forms new friendships and finds herself falling in love with sixteen-year-old surfer, Todd Spencer – a handsome and enigmatic young man unlike anyone she’s met before.

But it’s not all surfers and sunsets when a tragic accident occurs which leads Christy to consider some of life’s biggest questions, and she’s not afraid to ask them aloud: What gives life meaning? Do our choices matter or does fate control us? What is love, and how do you know when you’ve found, ‘the one?’ Is there a ‘one’ for her? Is there a God?

Against all odds, Christy ends her summer with a fresh, authentic sense of self and hope for the future.
