What kind of a mother just up and decides to be a lawyer, anyway? And what cruel twist of fate landed Whimsy and her mother in Provo, Utah - in BYU's family housing complex, no less? Whimsy is determined to be miserable; after all, she should be in sunny Arizona with her friends, not lonely in frozen Utah.
But Provo does have one perk: Josh Iverson. Whimsy admired Josh from afar back in Arizona, but now that he's going to BYU on a football scholarship and Whimsy finds herself living on campus, the change of scenery may just bring a change in their relationship.
In the meantime, though, Whimsy has a lot on her plate. Does Matt Hollingsworth like her, or is he just being nice? Why is she so at ease around Matt and so embarrassingly awkward around Josh? Then there's her mother to worry about. How did her mom manage to attract the attentions of the law school's geekiest student and meanest professor? Her mom wouldn't seriously consider either of them - would she?
Whimsy is about to embark on a senior year unlike any other - one that has the potential to be her best year yet, if she can survive.
