Jolted from her comfy, self-made nest and forced to see the world with new eyes, Caddie begins to take charge of her future—finding a new best friend, taking risks she never dreamed she could, and navigating the depths and shallows of true love and crushing heartbreak. And in the course of one extraordinary season, Caddie Winger will learn how to trust other people...and, ultimately, how to trust herself.
