Calla desperately wants to be a self-confident, independent divorcée. She knows she should change the subject when her daughter calls to tell her what a scumbag her ex-husband is. Instead, Calla listens and learns that he's admitted to having an affair while they were still married.
And this is just the beginning of bad news for Calla. After she's fallen for Ben, a kindhearted fellow student in her dance class, she finds a photo of a much younger wife on his Facebook page. On top of that, she loses her life savings and is forced to take a job at a local middle school.
Calla truly believes she's hit rock bottom until she gets to know some of the students she's tutoring. One in particular tugs on her heartstrings. Cody has cut himself off from all the light in his life after the death of his father, which he blames on himself. As Calla struggles to help Cody cope with his feelings and learning problems, she discovers he has a surprising connection to Ben. And as she helps her student head back into the light, she just may find that assisting him will brighten her own life as well.
