When a dream and a crush collide what happens can be magical or tragic. This isn’t an easy from rags to riches story but one that shows hard work, lots of planning and some luck can make your dreams come true. But, it’s also about family expectations and what happens when you don’t follow them. It’s not always pretty and it doesn’t always work out. Keeli is an awesome character. She has spunk and a free spirit but she also is rooted in practicality. Wyatt has grown up knowing what his role in life is and knowing what is expected of him. He is a rule follower who isn’t sure how to break the rules. These two very different characters would normally never interact but chance encounters can change that. This story is so much more than just these two characters. Families and friends influence decisions; sometimes causing problems and other times supporting the desire to follow dreams. Emotions are all over the place and you can’t help but to feel them too. As this is the first book in a new series, I hope to see these characters again as well as the rest of the interesting characters that you meet throughout this book. I really want to know what happens to several of them. This story is a great start to what looks to be an awesome series.
