Rachel Reynolds is the daughter of a scientist and a poet, so her beliefs on Creation and Karma and all those other mythical things are varied, but when one passionate night with Tripp, the boy she’s loved her entire, life leads to heartache and a poorly chosen moment with another boy, whom she barely knows let alone loves, which then leads to a baby, she’s pretty sure Karma or no, the universe is a real biatch.
Now, Rachel is getting ready to graduate, and while balancing college applications, mommyhood, and the greater question of where the future is leading her, Rachel also makes the discovery that she isn’t over her first love…and he isn’t over her. But the timing, oh the timing. As Rachel tries to navigate through the possibilities of a relationship with Tripp, a nightmare from two years ago reappears in her life and threatens the already shaky balance she’s worked long and hard for, causing her to question if she'll continue to pay her entire life for one mistake, and if happily ever after only comes to those who get it right the first time.
