The book begins with a man named Jonathan, sick of his boring never getting anywhere life. When Jonathan decides to make some changes so his life can be more exciting, he finds himself doing things he ought not to, jeopardizing his safety. This makes him wonder what he's doing and why is he doing these things but it doesn't stop him from continuing to do so. He's not quite sure what he wants to do so he goes out searching. He ends up at a skating rink. He's not expecting to do anything there but skate and think on old times. Instead he meets a woman, not just any woman. A woman that entices his mind so much, he's convinced he's in love with her now there's one problem. She's not looking for a relationship, she's been living her dream, traveling the USA and not thinking about having a boyfriend let alone a husband. After she convinces him to skate with her and talks with him for an hour, Jonathan is determined to have her in his life. She suddenly leaves the rink though and is nowhere to be found. All Jonathan is left with is her phone number and a journal she accidently left behind which he thinks is the key to getting a second chance to be with her. After searching for her a while, he heads home. A sequence of events happen along the way that turn Jonathan's boring life into one that he can't seem to get control of. From that moment on, he tries to get Angela to be his, while trying to get this pesky skateboarding teenager off his heels and wanting to get his parents house back.
