And during her favorite gig building affordable homes, she’s happy to befriend a mysterious boy… until he scorns her supposedly naïve, privileged mindset.
As doubt chips away at her confidence, the big-hearted girl worries her perfect plans for the future are quickly unraveling. And with new boyfriend troubles, a bestie spiraling into a meltdown, and an unexpected loss, she fears she’s not the person she always wanted to be.
Can Lola uncover the missing piece she needs to feel completely whole?
