Esme Hawkins wasn't exactly sure where she was going with her life. She knew what her parents wanted: someone successful, maybe a doctor - anything that brought in money and encouraged a good life. Specifically anything that wasn't her older sister, an eclectic artist who abandoned the guaranteed stability that her parents wanted for an art school in the big city. Esme knew what her parents yearned for, but she didn't know what made her passionate enough to go against her mom and dad's will. But when she meets her sister's friend during a small birthday celebration, Esme is introduced to dozens of different possibilities that could change her life for the better.
