Seventeen-year-old Adelaide is sick of being expected to succeed on other people's terms. She knows she just has to stick it out at school for one more year and then she'll be free. Instead, she runs away from her fancy boarding school back to her sleepy hometown to read and dream. But there are no free rides. When Addie's grandad gets her a job at the local historical society, she soon finds out that it's dusty and dull, just like her new life. Things change when she starts hanging out with Jarrod, a boy who seems full of possibilities. But it turns out he's as stuck as she is. And Addie realises that when you want something in life, you've actually got to do something about it.
