Some journeys don’t come with a map.
It’s senior year, and Whitney Richards is tired of the constant pressures to be perfect. When she gets a D in calculus, her mother immediately worries Whitney won’t get into the “right” college — Mom’s alma mater — and hires Taylor as tutor. Taylor is a quiet, mysterious boy unlike anyone Whitney has ever met, but his upbringing has her mother and friends discouraging any type of relationship.
Tired of having to play a part for everyone else, Whitney quits the activities that once defined her social identity and begins spending more time with Taylor. Is Whitney making a huge mistake, as everyone seems to think? Even Taylor begins to question some of her choices, but for the first time, Whitney is in the driver’s seat of her life. Will she be able to find her identity — and God’s plan for her life — before she throws everything away?
